A juggler of fragments, Ronnie has always been interested in setting and keeping things in motion. Interested in creating a complete image, she uses disparate pieces to make the whole. It is a selective process about incorporating, juxtaposing and eliminating. It is about finding and losing. It is a method of working that echoes the ways she makes choices in her daily living.
Collage has always been a satisfying vehicle for expressing Ronnie’s ideas and emotions. The scissors and the Exacto blade are her paintbrushes. They help create line and shape quickly and crisply. Paper is her pallet. There is a language of paper. Glossy, saturated magazine paper sings. The color, plainness and usefulness of brown paper offers a rough quality. Velum provides a translucence that allows for a far-away feel. She also enjoy painting on various types of surfaces, such as cardboard and museum board.
Ronnie received a B.A. from Monmouth College and a BFA from the Corcoran School of Art.
Ronnie works at Passageways Studio in Riverdale, Maryland.
