Rhony Bhopla MFA ’22 Makes Art For A Cause

Rhony Bhopla MFA ’22 is using her passion to support Pacific students.

Art by Rhony BhoplaBhopla, who is studying poetry in the university’s low-residency Master of Fine Arts in Writing program, is a British Indo-American artist who displays and sells her visual art on her Facebook page.

She often turns those sales to fundraising for nonprofits. “Fundraising is something I enjoy, especially when there is a need and the organization has a great mission.” This year, she has offered half the proceeds from her art sales to the Pacific University Student Emergency Fund.

“I am studying ekphrasis, the confluence of visual and literary art. So my visual art pieces are motivated by my intense study in the program,” she said.
