For most of her life, Rhonda Franks has been using art to express her profound reverence for nature, creating images of what strikes her as beautiful, meaningful, or in need of preservation. Having always had a soft spot for animals, she has found herself coming to the aid of injured and orphaned wildlife. These encounters have served as reference and inspiration for her art. Rhondaís work can be found in private collections in Canada and internationally, including Brazil and England. It is also found in the Toyota Corporate collection and the Rogerís Family Collection. She has participated in various juried, group and solo exhibitions. In addition to a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Guelph, she earned a diploma in Graphic Design from Mohawk College. Along with taking classes with local artists, she has participated in seminars with wildlife artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman.
