- Arts & Culture
I am a mixed media artist, having lived in Brooklyn since 1989. In 2009, after a long hiatus, I got out my paints inspired to make art again while working in my career which included graphic design and marketing.
“Retired” from my profession as business communicator, I enjoy time to push color around canvas. 2019, frustrated by a lack of work space in my home, I found a place in Oregon for a working studio, gallery, small retail area, and room to offer monthly “playshops” in a variety of media.
Regular open hours 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Other days/times are by chance or appointment. If my “open” sign is lit, I am ready to welcome visitors. To make an appointment text 608-220-5139.
It doesn’t matter if OngaArt is “good:” It is fun. And often mystical as it has the intention to represent and share the energy that we truly are.
“Onga” is the name that my grandson gave me. As his naming coincided with the time I began to make art again, it was a no-brainer to use
