Bonnie’s award winning commissions enhance public spaces, health care facilities, synagogues and community centers in the U.S. and Israel. Two of her  recent works were selected for the 2017 Mosaic Arts International Exhibition. Her work has been included in The Ohio Percent for Arts Program, the Spertus Museum International Judaica Exhibition, and the Eco Arts Awards. Her artist-in-residency projects have also received national recognition.

After graduating from Carnegie-Mellon University, Bonnie began her career as an art director specializing in corporate branding. She left the corporate world after 15 years and studied ceramics for two years where she developed her own unique style of telling stories in clay. She uses a combination of predominately luminous recycled glass mosaic and richly detailed handmade tiles.

Bonnie was able to successfully transition her career to include large-scale public art projects and artist-in-residence programs. She credits her successful career transition to her corporate design experience where she learned to listen and help clients translate their organizations’s ideas into clear visual statements.

Bonnie has partnered with architects, designers and fundraising professionals  to build a niche market for many  fine art donor recognition projects in New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Washington DC., Maryland, Georgia,Florida, Rhode Island and Ohio.

Whether it’s a group of doctors in a palliative care unit, schoolchildren in Israel, elderly residents in a nursing home, or volunteers at a community center, Bonnie finds her inspiration by listening to people’s stories. She continues to tell visual stories with her mosaic art and loves the challenge of creating inspirational and uplifting imagery  reflecting the values, ideas and spiritual core of an organization.
