The human form is at the center of Ramona Nordal's artistic practice. Nordal has created a distinct style defined in much of her work by combining classic subjects with an edgy contemporary flare. Looking closely at some of her work one will notice the intricate hand drawn features that play on the boldly painted figures. The end result creates an overwhelming sense of energy and intrigue. Ramona tries to push the boundaries of traditional figurative/portrait painting by choosing an unconventional mixture of color and patterns within her work. Nordal studied at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. Studying under internationally renowned Canadian artist Dennis Burton she focused on colour theory, anatomy drawing and painting. Nordal's work has been shown in Canada, the United States, Kuwait, Europe and most recently Australia.
