Bonnie L. Tucker

Artist Statement

Bonnie L Tucker portrait revised

In 2006 Bonnie came with a group of artists from Texas for a week long paint out in the Monterey Bay area. She was so captured by the beautiful scenery, the mystical atmosphere, and the fascinating wildlife that she began to spend more time in the area painting both the coastal and the inland scenes. This region has now become her passion. Not only has she changed her medium from watercolor to soft pastel, but she also has transitioned from being a studio artist to an en plein air artist.   She hopes to share with her viewers both this new artistic passion as well as the singular moments in time she has captured in her paintings.
