Rhea is primarily a self taught artist with an upbringing in both NY and California. She is a studio artist which allows the time for the fascinating details that are the foundation of what we cherish in our lands. Also enthusiastic as a plein air artist, her brush flows loosely to capture the essence of the day and place that is inspiring her and the treasures we all share and need to care for. As a natural result of time spent traveling through and studying the lush beauty and open mountain top views that are characteristic of the Adirondacks, the resulting quality of her work is her own vision, but has been compared to Hudson River School artists.
Rhea's work has been exhibited at the Adirondack Museum Rustic Fair, Lake Placid Lodge, Adirondack Art Society Show, Old Forge Center for the Arts, Adirondack Rustic Expo, winning Peoples Choice Award, and Adirondack Living Show. In addition, her work embellished award winning “Best Adirondack Furniture” at the Western Design Conference in Cody, Wyoming. Rhea’s original paintings and giclee prints are sought by collectors throughout the United States. Originals are best acquired by commission, contacting Rhea at firstname.lastname@example.org, or attend shows, Lake Placid Lodge, Adirondack Rustics Gallery & Gold Mountain Gallery. Prints may be seen at Lake Placid Lodge, Adirondack Rustic Gallery, Adirondack Museum Store, Adirondack Country Store.
