I am a native Houstonian, a life-trained artist, and a dental hygienist with over 31 years of experience. My body of work is a series of creatively inspired mantras brought to life in my original works of art, using a variety of mixed media such as textiles, ceramics, and paints to blend a unique collage of textures. My style of work is inspired by my travels to more than 16 countries, bringing a bold and rhythmic pattern of West African fabrics to the fine handmade papers of Japan.

I believe strongly in the power of giving and have merged my passion for wellness and creativity into a growing line of healing art products under my personal brand, ARTRRA Mantra (Art by Rhonda Radford Adams). I partner with other healing artists to provide workshops for expressive arts and healing activities such as yoga, meditation, and dance to promote social wellness through the arts.

I have worked extensively for over 25 years with community organizations, hospitals, and schools to provide social wellness through the arts with the young and young at heart. I also travel to share these creative experiences to promote health arts literacy and education for underserved communities across the globe. My ultimate goal is to inspire creativity in others and enhance their well-being through art.
