Throughout May, Ramona is exhibiting eleven fine art works conveying the harmony and energy of Maine, at the Constellation Gallery at 511 Congress Street in Portland, Maine. Ramona is a member of this unique Maine Cooperative. Some of these fine art photographs resemble watercolors and have been exhibited in New York, Japan, Scotland, England, Ireland, Florida and Maine.

In 1979 Ramona developed a technique, called Lightgraphs, which shows motion and energy in a unique way. It became her way of painting with the camera.

“Some Native American’s say everything is a part of everything else. At times we can sense that reality, like when the sun wraps around objects late in the day and breezes gently move tree leaves, grain and clouds in landscapes,” said du Houx. “I try to show how everything is interconnected, to capture that stillness that also combines a rush of energy, with my photography.”
