Rhonda Whitehead

Mrs. Rhonda L. Whitehead was born at Sydney, Australia in 1950. Rhonda studied at Byam Shaw School of Drawing and Painting 1966-1968, gaining a diploma in Art and Design; the Royal College of Art 1968-1971 gaining an M.A. in Fine Art and at Hornsey College of Art 1971-1972 and awarded her teacher training certificate. Rhonda has taught at London College of Fashion 1974-1976; Byam Shaw School of Art 1977; Croydon College of Art & Design 1978; St Martins School of Art 1981 and many other schools and colleges including latterly Norfolk C.C. Adult Education. An award-winning artist, the interesting part of Rhonda Whiteheadís paintings is the way she manages to develop a language without falling prey to style, to the liturgy of modernist abstraction or indeed traditional figuration. She has exhibited widely including two sculptures at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition also showing at the Royal College of Art; Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; the London Group of Artists; Fermoy Gallery, Kings Lynn; Wells Art Centre, Norfolk; Mandellís Gallery, Norwich; and in Suffolk at Halesworth Gallery; Buckenham Galleries, Southwold; Blackthorpe Barn, Rougham also abroad in Utrecht, Holland and Ostend, Belgium. Her book 'Rhonda Whitehead' was published in 2015. She has her studio at Black Barn, Low Road, Mendham, Suffolk.
