Bonita is inspired by the sea and its changeable environment, painting using oils, ink and watercolours.
'“DO WHAT YOU ENJOY, AND YOU WILL NEVER DO A DAYS WORK IN YOUR LIFE”
Wouldn’t that be great if it were true? It does help if you love what you do, but it is still very much a full-time job. The studio lights get switched on just about the same time as the first ferry pulls away from the pier.
The odd deer in the garden, the occasional pheasant and always a chicken share the light spilling out from the studio. Working in the early morning and late evening means the afternoons are set aside for sailing, canoeing or spending time with family. It’s an excellent way to live. Life is about balance.'
