Personal Landscapes  -  Visions Art Museum  •   San Diego, California
January 18, 2020 - April 5, 2020

Bonnie Bucknam has been sewing and making art since early childhood.  In high school she launched a successful mail order business manufacturing fabric purses. Since then she has always made art to enjoy and market. Bonnie grew up in Long Beach, California and graduated from California State University Long Beach with a degree in Anthropology and Geology.  Shortly thereafter, she moved to Alaska.  She worked as an archaeologist and warehouseman building the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. She remained in Alaska for 31 years, spending most of those working as a legal assistant at the Alaska Attorney General’s Office in Anchorage.  She always used every “spare” minute to create fiber art. She attended numerous quilting, design, fabric dyeing, and painting classes and studied extensively with Nancy Crow. In 1997 she started a business, Handwerk, to market her quilts and hand-dyed fabrics.  In 2006, Bonnie retired from legal work and relocated to Vancouver, Washington, where, as a fiber artist and painter, she now creates art full-time.
