About Rona Innes

Wild, untamed nature. Rona Innes’s formative years in the sub arctic tundra of the Cairngorms is at the heart of her work. Her art captures the mischievous spirit animals inhabiting these landscapes as they pause to catch the viewer out.

Intricate drawings collide with semi-chaotic actions as fluids and powders are layered up with detailed pen and brush work, echoing the environment that these creatures live within.
