A few words about the pattern animal series.
Bonnie’s pattern animal series was developed over a period of five years and brings together her love of humour, graphic text and animals. She fine-tuned her technique and approach during the two years of study which she undertook to achieve her Art Diploma. Her work, which is bold, quirky and humorous with a strongly original edge has been described as compelling, engaging and believable.
