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. 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, the resulting quality of her work is her own vision, but has been compared to Hudson River School artists.
