She draws much inspiration from the ocean view just outside her studio on the rugged shores of Cape Breton. She translates the joy that she feels there into her fabulous glass creations.
These, one of a kind, pieces have a wonderful sense of colour and her graphic design background makes exploration and design of geometric shapes an even more dramatic look in her distinctive works.
Bonnie has been juried into numerous exhibits and has displayed in Butchard Gardens (Victoria, B.C.), the Skooke Fine Art Show and has been purchased and enjoyed by people around the world.
As a long- time instructor for creating fused glass she has truly enjoyed introducing new glass artists to this wonderful medium.
Glass fusing has been in existence since around 2000 BC and once cut and laid out, each piece is then typically fired at high temperatures that takes place over a 24 to 36-hour schedule to achieve their final individual unique appearance.
