Bonnie believes there is great joy in painting red rocks on a hot desert day, or listening to aspen leaves flutter in the wind as you paint the autumn trees. This, she feels, is part of the experience of painting out of doors. Her paintings reflect this emotional energy through her use of color, expressive brushstrokes and her unique use of light.
“Everywhere I go I see a possible work of art. The joy is being able to paint what I see and give others the opportunity to see and feel what I experienced at the time”.
Bonnie grew up in Price Utah, and spent many years exploring the desert and mountain landscapes of Eastern Utah. This has given her a deep respect for the natural world and she brings this integrity into her paintings.
