DESIGN >for your homes & gardens
"Find a Way" is the philosophy Rhonna del Rio remembers her grandmother habitually instilling in all aspects of life. Today, Rhonna naturally carries this same way of thinking in all that she does. She thrives on being a part of the solution and is always the first to roll up her sleeve to get the job done efficiently and passionately.
Rhonna holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from California Polytechnic University, Pomona, CA. She was the recipient of prestigious awards including the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Design and Academic Award and Concours d'Elegance. Having graduated as one of the top designers in her class, she initiated her first few years in architecture with Meier Partners/STUDIOpractice a world-renowned Architecture Firm, internationally known for the Getty Center in Los Angeles and other Civic Centers in the United States and around the world. After resigning from the Meier Partners firm, Rhonna has since become an independent design consultant for numerous Architecture firms. Rhonna also brought her passion for design as an adjunct instructor at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) teaching commercial design. Today, as an American Institute of Architects, Associate member, she has over 20 years of combined design professional experience in architecture, landscape architecture, and a variety of art and design collaborations from paintings on canvasses, products, furniture, and more. Although her petite physique can be unassuming at first, Rhonna del Rio has a giant creative imagination and conquers design challenges of all scales with simple, practical, and out-of-the-box solutions.
ART > for your heart
In 2011, Rhonna's creative path took an unexpected turn, when her personal journey alongside her yoga practice inspired early etchings of spiritual expressions drawn on small square coffee filters that eventually turned into large paintings on canvasses. Her feminine and angelic beings come to life as her sweeping brush strokes capture the dance between breath and sacred movement, touching on themes of light, love, freedom, divine feminine, balance, purity, harmony, and truth. Today, her art can be found in healing spaces and homes around the world while gaining a reputation as art for healing. Her canvases glow an intimate shade of a creative yogi's journey to the soul. A whisper of truth.
HARMONY > for your mind
What started out as a Feng Shui consultation and over 15 years practicing with certification gained from the prominent world-renowned teacher of the practice, has evolved into a more personalized, free-flowing, heart-centered harmony consultation where she pulls inspiration from her faith in God through prayer to understand exactly what adjustments, ommissions & additions are needed in an existing space to help support the client's desired goal for their lives, homes, and businesses.
