Technique: Mixed media collage & Multimedia
Bonnie is a Visual Artist specializing in mixed media collage and Multimedia.
She lives in Rural Marlborough and works from her home studio to stock work to NZ gallery's.
She has been actively exhibiting her artworks since 2000 and after being awarded scholarships, completed a Diploma with Honors in Art and Creativity in 2013.
It was during her art studies that Bonnie settled into working in mixed media collage and within the last five years Bonnie's processes have developed and evolved to include multimedia artworks. Bonnie incorporates old sewing patterns and other vintage and retro printed materials and her own hand made collage papers in her artworks to create her highly original pieces. In her multimedia work she also incorporates photography and digital editing with a digital delivery. Her most recent works, created especially for NZ Art Show 2022 have been focused on working back into her Project, multimedia artwork in mixed media, utilizing layers of medium to develop depth and 3D effects.
Bonnie has several recognizable series of work that exist as large bodies of work.
The Postal Collage Project
The Covid 19 lockdown Social Distancing Pets Project
The *Get a Head* series
