Born in Sacramento, California, LONA has been consumed with art since she was 3 years old. She knew from the very start what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. From her childhood, through her teens and early adulthood, she knew and pursued her passion for drawing, painting and design.

As a professional Graphic Designer, LONA has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Graphic Design from San Jose State University and has been a professional Graphic Designer for over 22 years. She has been a Partner/Senior Designer for The Blank Company, and has also owned and operated Bluestone Studio, Inc., and now owns Fine Art & Design by LONA, Inc.

LONA has won many national awards for her design work, including a Benjamin Franklin Award – Best of Show, an Addy Award, and many American Graphic Design Awards.

As a Fine Artist, LONA expresses her subjects in a bold colorful pallet with a contemporary flair. Her canvases reveal exciting wines, spirits and compelling florals. The majority of her work is done in acrylics and the subject matter of her paintings is what she coins,“close-up realism.”

Since 2002, she has owned and operated 3 successful art galleries and has traveled aboard cruise ships selling her artwork. She now has collectors from all over the world. Currently, LONA has her newest gallery in Los Angeles.

Originals and limited edition giclées are available. LONA also accepts commissions upon request.

“Colors and reflections are the ‘life’ of my subjects.”
