Bonnie Latham began her art career at a very young age. Inspired by her creative family and their love of the outdoors, she paints nature, landscape, animals, birds, and the occasional portrait. She works in watercolor, acrylic, oil, inks, graphite/charcoal and others, however watercolours have become her medium of choice.
She achieves a unique quality of depth and shape in her work, drawing the viewer into her paintings. Bonnie works in a assortment of sizes and formats, ranging from larger miniature paintings to very small ones rendered less than one square inch. Bonnie feels driven by her love of the outdoors and wildlife. She is particularly drawn to render raptors and predators in her artwork, though she enjoys painting all wildlife subjects.
Her travels have taken her to countless areas of the United States to study wildlife and habitat first hand. Her dedication to environmental conservation is evident in her paintings and drawings. "The balance of nature is so delicate. I only hope that through my paintings more people will realize that, unless we do our part, nature won't be here for us to enjoy. I enjoy helping wildlife and nature programs in any way I can." She spends as much time as possible studying her subjects. Her knowledge of each species is reflected in her artwork. " It's important to see not just the animal, but the the twigs, grass, moss, etc. I try to bring these things into my studio."
