Indulgent, vibrant pieces of art

Welcome to PaintingByDigits - an etsy store purely for your indulgence in colour and texture. If you are looking for a painting or jewellery piece that will thrill your senses, you've come to the right place!

Rona Barugahare has been painting and drawing all her life, growing up in both Melbourne and Uganda. Her lifetime passion for colour has been fuelled by her experiences with the African tropics and its vibrant plants, birds and insects. Her current works are a celebration of vivid colours and contrasts, with an emphasis on emotive painterly textures. Her painting style creates a sense of motion and a unique textural pattern.

‘I love the sheer indulgence of painting pure oil paint for bold textures and brilliant colour contrasts. I choose abstract themes to allow the emphasis to remain on the colour and surface of the paint, and each viewer finds a different scene or emotion in my pieces.’

Each painting has a coat of gloss varnish coating to ensure the texture and colours are as vibrant as possible (as well as for protection). The jewellery pieces are painted directly onto the pendant tray and then cast in clear epoxy resin - creating a Venetian-glass effect.

During the weekdays Rona works as a veterinarian, so any purchases will usually be packed and shipped by the following weekend. Eco-friendly materials and waste minimisation for both painting and packing are used whenever possible.

Please do not hesitate to send any inquiries or feedback, Rona is always more than happy to help.
