Bonny Hawley weaves from the fabrics of ancient worlds and threads of her imagination to create her mysterious flowing large scale mixed media artworks. She strives to uplift and inspire the viewers' spirit, and is deeply inspired by the beauty and serenity of the water and her nature surroundings in South West Florida.
Experimentation and Imagination are the driving forces in her work. Never one to color in the lines she is
constantly striving to try new techniques and pushing the limits of the traditional processes. The Art consists of
acrylic mixed media collage with layers of papers, prints, metallic paints and a unique glazing technique on
textured surfaces and free flowing supports.
Bonny has been a professional full time working studio artist for 40 years. Originally from Kansas she graduated
with a BFA in Art from FHSU, and has lived in Naples Florida for the last 30 years. Represented by fine art galleries across the country, the work is in private and corporate collections in the United States, Europe and Asia.
"Living by the ocean inspires and heals me, the flow of the water, the changing tides and the supreme power that
controls it all."
