Featured Artist: Bonnie Taylor Talbot

It's a Surprise Party

Bonnie Taylor Talbot is one of those people who has the soul of an artist and it is evident in everything she touches. For the past 15 years she's been painting and perfecting her own unique voice. Her paintings are delightful. They're colorful, and full of her own brand of humor. She frequently travels to France and Italy, taking her paints and canvasses along, returning to her Portland Oregon studio full of new ideas!

 Her studio is spacious and full of light, wonderfully cluttered with not only the paints and canvasses of her trade, but all kinds of little collections of bits and pieces that speak Bonnie. Lots of works in progress and projects being explored just for the fun of it. There’s a healthy dose of whimsy in everything she creates!


Bonnie  has a shop on etsy, where she is a member of the juried Artisans Gallery Team. You can visit her on etsy at She also sells at Convergence Gallery in New Mexico and on her website.

             I've  loved Bonnie's work for a long time. Her paintings always make me smile, as does she!

pearls, pearls, pearls!

I do love working with pearls. All shapes and colors. Buttons, drops, and free form. here are some recent  examples of how I'm using up my pearl stash! Fortunately, there are always more where these came from! Some of these pieces are currently available in my etsy store.
