Meet Bonnie

1Welcome!! I’m so happy you’ve taken time today to look at my art. I can’t imagine a life without my animals. The mean the world to me, as I’m sure yours do to you. 

I grew up in a small farm community in Northern Virginia called Nokesville, where I was actively involved in 4-H and with many different horse associations. As a child, I had dogs, cats, horses, ducks, parakeets and fish. As an adult, I’ve downsized to one dog and three horses, but my love for all animals hasn’t diminished!

I can’t remember a time when my life didn’t include animals, art and photography. I primarily work with acrylic paint, generally on wood, canvas or Bristol board. For my photography, I use a Canon Rebel digital SLR. I am passionate about capturing my pets’ unique personalities and funny antics through my art, and hope you will allow me to do the same for yours!

I opened Shamrock Studios in May of 2017.  I am a member of ‘Round The Mountain: Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Network‘,  The Virginia Equine Artists AssociationAbingdon Arts Depot, and the Art Guild of Greene County.  My work is available for purchase at Heartwood and the Abingdon Arts Depot in Abingdon, VA, and at Fat Boys BBQ in Saint Paul, VA. I will have a vendor booth set up at some local festivals throughout the year – be sure to check out my Events page for more information.

Thank you for taking the time to visit Shamrock Studios. I look forward to working with you to create something special!
