Zona Wainwright


Zona is a native of the New Orleans area and extensively studied drawing, watercolor and abstract acrylic painting at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts and in numerous workshops.

Textures and blending of color in an abstract medium is the foundation of Zona's work.  A long-time jewelry-making interest expressing earth tones and natural elements is mirrored in her art in the form of mixed-media combinations of form and color as well as more traditional acrylic explosions of shapes and colors.

Another favorite subject can be found in the abstract interpretation of European architecture from Zona's travels to that continent.  While meeting the criteria for abstract composition, the viewer can identify the canals of Venice or the artifacts of Rome in a dramatic melding of colors and shapes.

Zona has been exhibiting widely in galleries and her work can be found in numerous private and public art collections.
