Bonnie is a self-taught wildlife photographer residing in the Pacific Northwest. Since retiring in 2009, Bonnie has been able to devote herself to combining her love of photography and art with her lifelong passion for animals and the natural world.
Bonnie is very proud to have had her image of the bald eagle and herons of Seabeck, WA, selected as the 2016 Audubon Photography Awards Grand Prize winner. The image was selected from nearly 7000 entrants and was honored by hanging in the Smithsonian for a year with the Natures Best Photography Show. With other awards for selections such as this puffin photo under her belt, Bonnie proudly presents nature photography from the Pacific Northwest and from around the world, right here at The Gallery!
Since childhood, Rebecca has been surrounded by art. Growing up in Virginia her family introduced her to many galleries, museums and the artists themselves which led to a lifelong passion for creative process & expression. Rebecca was well into her 30s before she found a creative outlet of her own. After teaching herself to knit, she fell in love with all things fiber arts, gradually adding weaving, spinning and traveling to the most vibrant and active fiber arts communities of the world. She aspires someday to combine her love for riding motorcycles with her passions of travel and fiber arts for an amazing nomadic lifestyle with her loving husband George. Of course she will find ways to carry some knitting, weaving, and spinning for the motorcycle rest breaks!
