Bonnie Anthony


Artist Statement

Living in Colorado most of my life, I began my formal art education in illustration and graphic design at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. Further studies took me to the Denver Botanic Gardens’ Botanical Illustration certificate program. While enjoying success as a botanical illustrator, the artform brought frustration for lack of spontaneity.

My passion now lies in the study and practice of abstract painting. Working in mixed media from my home studio in Black Forest, Colorado, I have found the spontaneity I was seeking. Thick paint, scraping, sanding to reveal layers and experimental mark-making allow me to ask, “what if?” and to share my intrigue for the drama and emotion of weather, the color and peace of a sunset and the simple arrangement of stones in a stream among other natural occurrences.
