I have been painting professionally for 20+ years in the Columbia Gorge area. I consider both Oregon and Washington to be my home. I was born in Oregon but have lived on a small farm in Washington (right across the river) for the past 35 years. I express my passion for the beauty of my environment through watercolor. I've structured my life so that my time is available to paint and interact with those online who wish to purchase my work.
My study of art has been self-directed with workshop instructors that include, most notably, Tom Lynch (watercolor), Ron Ranson (watercolor) and Kenn Backhaus (oil)--yet also include: Gayle Weisfield, Phil Tyler, Arne Westerman, Dee Frank, Judith Cunningham, Mitch Baird, in person and have been very influenced by Skip Lawrence over the years, through books, magazines and videos, but am most inspired by Richard Schmid, whose work speaks to my heart. I live and paint in the Columbia Gorge area of the Pacific Northwest.
I also sell my work through this website and through a limited number venues in the Columbia Gorge Area, including art festivals in the Columbia Gorge and/or Portland, Oregon area, and prints, card packs, magnets and calendars are available at bonniewhitewatercolor.com.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
