Born in Sacramento, California, LONA has been consumed with art since she was 3 years old. She knew from the very start what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. From her childhood, through her teens and early adulthood, she knew and pursued her passion for drawing, painting and design.

As a professional Graphic Designer, LONA has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Graphic Design from San Jose State University and has been a professional Graphic Designer for over 30 years. 

LONA has won many national awards for her design work, including a Benjamin Franklin Award - Best of Show, an Addy Award, and several American Graphic Design Awards. 

After 12 years of working commercially as a professional Graphic Designer, in the year 2000, LONA took a year off to live in Paris, France, to focus on painting.  During that year, she spent her time traveling, drawing, painting and developing her unique artistic style, and returned to the States with over 30 paintings.

Since that wonderful adventure, she has owned and operated 3 of her own art galleries and currently, she operates Fine Art & Design by LONA, Inc., in Los Angeles.  

Additionally, she has been a guest artist aboard cruise ships selling her artwork and now she has collectors from all over the world. 

You can see more of her work on Facebook at Fine Art & Deisgn by LONA and on Instragram as Artist Lona.
