Born in Lebanon, Rima Muna lives and paints in California. Raised in a diverse cultural background, Rima's work is influenced by her love of travel. Places like Bali (Indonesia), Andalusia (Spain) and San Miguel de Allende (Mexico) have been symbolic in creating Rima's intense palette of deep, rich colors.
After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Design (graphic design & photography) and a Masters of Education degree in Art, Rima started focusing on painting in 2006. Her style is influenced by the abstract expressionists who believed that non-representational painting could express spiritual and emotional truths. Rima approaches her paintings with a passionate immediacy and you are left looking at the energetic expressions on canvas.
As a former piano player and vocalist, music is one of the greatest inspirations for Rima. Spirituality and nature act as points of inspiration and undercurrents in her work.
