The other day I described a gift I received through an art exchange I took part in. On Friday, this little gem (7.5″ x 6″), from Bonnie of Bonnie Samuel Designs, was in my mailbox. I am beginning to understand why artists are enthusiastic about such exchanges!
Bonnie describes her love of art as follows:
I’ve been interested in art since a child and combining my fiber experience and knowledge with my design and painting skills has opened a new and exciting path for me in the form of textile arts. I pull together all the artistic methods that I enjoy most- fiber, paint, stitchery – and find expressive and creative voice in fiber arts.
In her artist statement, Bonnie ends with:
My imagery is meant for the viewer to identify with, have a good laugh, raise a fist in affirmation or simply enjoy.
Thank you so much, Bonnie, you certainly sent enjoyment my way!
