Rony has an exhibition at The Boxfield Gallery, situated in the Gordon Craig Theatre complex in Stevenage - more details on the gallery are here.
Rony Medina was born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and studied Fine Art at the Universidad de La Laguna. After graduating she was selected for the European Community's Erasmus-Socrates interchange program studying for a PhD in Decorative and functional ceramics & graphics at the Academie foor Schoone Kunsten in Antwerp.
She subsequently moved to England and is now a teacher, living in Stevenage with her husband Richard.
Reflecting her classical European training Rony works mainly in water colour, acrylics and oils, drawing on a wide range of subjects ranging from portraits, large scale flower paintings and landscapes, to pure abstracts.
Having started drawing and painting her baby daughter Alba, Rony has received a number of commissions for child portraits. She has also illustrated a book of poems.
She and Richard are enthusiastic potters. However, the birth of Alba in September 2004, has temporarily stopped this work.
Since arriving in England Rony has had a solo exhibition at Exeter University and exhibited at a number of shows and open exhibitions. In April 2005 held a joint exhibition with Joyce Ford at the Hitchin Museum & Art Gallery. As part of the exhibition she held an adult evening workshop on new approaches to watercolour which was extended into a short course by popular demand.
She has works in a number of private collections and hosts classes at different times throughout the year at Tim's Art Supplies in Hitchin, Herts. - click here for current information.
