Tonya Newton's Profile

About

My name is Tonya Newton. I am a painter, web designer, and graphic artist. I have a degree in digital design and I'm a self-taught painter. These days I'm currently working out of my home in Hillsboro, Oregon (just outside of Portland).

My art career began in 2001. I had a passion (more like .. somewhat of an obsession) for collecting mid-century modern furniture and difficulty finding appropriate art. On a whim, I discovered painting. Hearing friends and family compliment my work, I took a chance and put a painting up for auction on EBay. It sold right away to an interior designer who was searching for art to design a commercial space. I was hooked! Demand for my work soon followed and I was all too willing to oblige in sharing my own passion.

Demand for my work soon followed and I was all too willing to oblige in sharing my own passion. Since that time, many opportunies have arisen that have only fueled my desire to create modern art that is influenced by the past.

I feel that my art is an expression of space, not of mind. I choose shapes, colors, and lines that are aesthetically pleasing to me. Throughout the years, people have asked about the "meaning" behind my art. My response is that there is none, I create art because I like it .. because it goes with stuff.

After SIXTEEN! years of being a professional artist I have no plans on stopping any time soon. I'm always on the adventure to work on new mediums and finding different ways of creating art.

Please feel free to contact me for information if you're ever in need of graphic design, would like a commissioned piece of artwork, have a question about any of my current (or past) designs or products, or if you'd just like to chat.
