Bonnie Zimmerling Artists’ Statement
My art is photography. Still life and landscapes are my passion – old abandoned houses and buildings, trees, and fence lines, etc. The abandoned buildings leave me wondering how people lived and what they left behind. I wonder why they left, why they chose to leave their home behind. I wonder what secrets the abandoned buildings keep. In my photos I try to show how I see what is around me.
Diana Wakely Artists’ Statement
An artist should never work in a vacuum. This has always been my motto. Working with Jill Alexander and Bonnie Zimmerling has been a great experience. I have challenged myself by interpreting Bonnie’s photos in watercolour on canvas. Though this is not the traditional way of painting watercolour, for me it has proven to be a worthwhile experience.
Jill Alexander Artists Statement
I find inspiration for my joyful acrylic artwork in the beauty of nature and wild imagination. Landscapes and flowers have a modern twist through the use of a palette knife and vibrant colour combinations. Abstracts are my fanciful imageries in bold shapes and patterns.
