Bonnie Coad is a visual artist from Marlborough specialising in bright, experimental, compositions. She has been painting for aprox fifteen years and has a Diploma with honours in Art & Creativity. She is Artist in Residence at the Award Winning Wither Hills Winery and her work is exhibited throughout the year.
She exhibits on a regular basis in exhibitions and Art shows around NZ.
Her art is active and dynamic; texture and form are repeating themes within her body of work. She works chiefly in mixed media, creating unique, humorous artworks inspired by a love of animals. Bonnie creates modern contemporary art work with a retro twist.
A few words about the pattern animal series.
Bonnie’s pattern animal series was developed over a period of five years and brings together her love of humour, graphic text and animals. She fine-tuned her technique and approach during the two years of study which she undertook to achieve her Art Diploma. Her work, which is bold, quirky and humorous with a strongly original edge has been described as compelling, engaging and believable.
