About Bonnie

Vincent Van Gogh

Art is to console those who are broken by life.” “If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” “I try more and more to be myself, caring relatively little whether people approve or disapprove.” “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.”

Bonnie Lorenzen is a native of Loudoun County, Virginia. She discovered at an early age that she had a love for the arts – drawing cartoons from TV in addition to writing and composing music at a young age. She studied art and music throughout high school. Her love of the arts was also matched by her love of horses. In 2004, she became the 1st successful Pinto American Saddlebred Breeder in Maryland and continued her breeding business until 2018.

In 2019 she stumbled upon Bob Ross on YouTube and became amazed with his style of painting, regenerating her love for painting. she learned his “Wet on Wet” technique and began creating her own style of painting not only through Bob’s tutelage, but other contemporary artists.  

Raised on a dairy farm in Bluemont, Virginia – She is inspired by nature, expressing through her works a strong emotional expression that is characterized by vivid colors, juxtaposition of complements and plays of light and dark. Whether she is painting a landscape, flower or portrait, each idea manifests in its own individual style. She uses a variety of media including acrylics, oils and watercolors. She believes working in a single medium restricts the creative process. Bonnie feels that to grow as an artist one must continually get out of one’s comfort zone, to experiment and challenge oneself through multiple genres. 

Bonnie enjoys reading and studying the history of various Artists such as Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Renoir, Manet, Gauguin and many more. She feels an artist should not only paint but expose themselves to the many different techniques and styles throughout history.
