Ona Kingdon

 CSPWC, NWS, TWSA, IWS Master

Ona Kingdon is an elected member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour, and a signature member of both the National Watercolor Society and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America. She is also president of the Canadian Branch of the International Watercolor Society and is an IWS Globe Master Member.
Ona loves to focus on feeling or emotion when creating art and enjoys painting or drawing any subject matter that has an emotive element to it. Selecting a palette that is in keeping with the emotion or mood of each painting is also very important to her. Ona is a qualified teacher with over 20 years experience working with both children and adults. She is passionate not just about painting but educating too. Her goal is to increase awareness about the diversity of watercolour as a medium, to show others that you can create any effect or style you want if you embrace its dynamic qualities. 

The creative process is a metamorphosis of thought, of understanding, and most of all belief that your ideas are worth pursuing so don't be afraid of the process. Embrace it and enjoy it - Ona Kingdon
