Bonnie Porter's Profile
I paint, draw, collage and sew 'beautiful papers'--CartaBella--inspired by gardens in Tuscany and interior floral bouquets.
Drawing on my sojourn in Europe, I am most fluent in the language of color. My palette is predominately the colors of the garden. This seems to make a strong connection with people who buy my artwork. "I love your cheerful paintings", and "Your paintings make me smile" are frequent comments. A friend made a sign for my art shows: Anti-Depressants Sold Here!
I also love classical music and audible books. While I paint, I like to listen to Bach or opera, as well as listen to a broad spectrum of books. Passionate Readers is the name of my book group. But I am also passionate about cultures and travel, teacups and teapots, fruits and vegetables, quilts and pillows, children and teachers…
