Artist Statement, Bonnie Kat:
"I find inspiration from the raw and wild beauty in nature. Patterns of light dancing on the surface of water, clouds telling stories, a breeze caressing woodland fronds, long shadows, broken pavement revealing stonework from a forgotten time, all invite me to take a closer look and cherish the beauty and magic of the moment.
As a child, I would retreat to the quiet of the forest after school, climb up into the welcoming branches of an old fallen river birch with my sketch pad and listen to the stream and song birds. My imagination was stirred along with my curiosity to experience every subtle part of the energy that restored and awakened my spirit.
I have lived a full life, raised four children, loved and lost and loved again, experienced life threatening illness and found strength and healing, worked, taught, competed, lectured, founded, and faltered. Life is a journey and there is always more to learn, experience, share, and be humbled by.
Both my painting and music have grown into an intuitive, impressionistic, Reiki style that opens a portal to another place, perception, light, where I have found restoration. My mission as a peaceful artist warrior is to share the healing power of that hidden beauty.
You can find me along the James River in Studio 110 of the Art Works gallery. The beautiful old brick buildings in the original heart of Richmond, Virginia, now an eclectic cultural arts district, border the large flood wall and hidden island treasures where sea birds and people enjoy the rapids of the river.
My given name is Bonnie Kathryn, my works are signed Bonnie, for "beauty," and as an artist I am called Bonnie Kat. I invite you to join me here for a personal or small group day retreat. Paint or sketch with me in the studio or along the river, experience a Reiki sound bath with ethereal music from the steel handpan, or discover a unique art treasure to refresh and inspire you and those who share your journey."
