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.
Zona Wainwright blends natural colors into undefined forms that tend to please the eye and tantalize the viewer's interpretation. Her acute eye for patterns in architecture and nature give rise to an expanded appreciation of color and geometric patterns.
This reliance on nature has become a means of expression and communication which, in her signature series on view at The Degas Gallery or www.zonagallery.com highlight her use of merging shades devoid of well-defined geometric shapes.
Zona has been exhibiting widely in galleries and her work can be found in numerous private and public art collections.
She was the cover artist for Inside New Orleans (December 2018/January 2019 issue). Click HERE for the article.
