Ona Steele was born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina. She received her undergraduate degree from Boston College where she graduated at the top of her class. She then attended the University of Virginia for law school. She practiced business litigation in Dallas, Texas for four years and then opened a legal recruiting firm in Delray Beach.
After her daughters were born, Ona relinquished her career and focused on being a mom. Once the girls were older she became interested in photography and then drawing and painting. Ona has shown her work locally and in various businesses and salons and was asked to show her work in a month long solo exhibition at the ArHouse of Delray in April of 2013. She now produces and displays her work at her studio in the heart of Artists Alley in Delray Beach.
Ona’s work often combines beauty and lush color with an undercurrent of disconsolateness or melancholy. Ona now lives with her husband and three daughters in Ocean Ridge, Florida.
