Bonnie Mann

Artist Statement

Art is my passion.   My childhood was spent with four siblings in a wonderful home full of love and laughter.  I always had access to water color paints and crayons and paper upon which to create, even if it was the side of a cardboard box.  My favorite subjects in school were art and music.  But art was where I found my joy.

After retiring from the corporate world, I began to devote more and more of my time to painting, along with  entering  art shows and approaching galleries.  I quickly became involved with local artists and galleries and my work started to sell.  I am currently a participating artist and co-owner of Carriage House Gallery in Boerne, Texas.  I am a member of Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, Boerne Professional Artists, and River Art Group. 

My next step in my pursuit of art was to build a studio on my property in the Texas hill country, a space devoted to creating and teaching as the opportunity arises.  I have recently completed my studio and spend countless hours planning and creating my next painting.  In each still life or landscape painting I strive to convey the beauty that I see in the world around me.  I invite the viewer on a journey to explore the world of color, light and form.  I want to tell a story with each painting but I invite the viewer to finish the story.

 Art is my therapy of choice.  I seek it daily.  It fills my heart and soul.
