Bonnie has a B.S. from Fredonia State University. In 1998, after a successful career in computer science, business, and academia she shifted her focus into the creative visual arts. She formally studied weaving under Master weavers Ruth Holroyd and Mary Snyder, along with a number of other well-known weavers in the U.S.
Having taught in both private and public sectors for over 30 years, she brings a wealth of experience to the workshops and retreats she leads on fiber arts, spirituality and creativity-related topics. Her warmth, patience, flexibility, and ability to read the students’ needs provide an environment that encourages students to create works that are unique and personally meaningful.
Through her business, Hands of Grace, she weaves on commission for liturgical and private clients. Her work can also be found in select gallery shops.
