Enjoying the challenge of painting still life, landscapes, and florals in oil, Gray says "I love to paint! I appreciate the richness of the colors made possible using oil on canvas, and strive to create a sense of realism. A day spent painting is as refreshing as any vacation day might be. My interest in art, and love of painting is without a doubt one of the great blessings in my life, and I strive to convey that feeling in my work."
Having studied at the Massachusetts College of Art while still in high school, Gray was also a student of the late Helen Van Wyk, focusing on still life painting with a concentration in the techniques of the Dutch Masters. In addition to being an artist member of the North Shore Arts Association since 1995, Bonnie has been a member of the Local Color Artists' Cooperative in Gloucester, MA since 2008. Her work can be found in private collections on Cape Ann and around the country.
