Bonny Novesky creates unusual acrylic prints on heavy Arches papers without using a press. Each piece is unique, and although she can control the color used, the finished product is often a surprise. The works on paper are frequently incorporated on canvas to create intricately complex layers of rich color abstracts.
Novesky's work has been greatly influenced by her travels in Asia—the structures of Tibetan temples, the ruins of Angkor Wat, the patterns of Japan, the colors of India and Nepal—as well as by the vibrant jewel tones of such semi-precious stones as ambers, aquamarines, turquoises, jades used in her jewelry designs for Saks Fifth Avenue in her many years as a designer.
The artist grew up in the Midwest and was a fine arts major at the University of Wisconsin. She continued her education at Layton School of Art in Milwaukee. Bonny actively shows her work in the Silicon Valley Open Studios, as well as at various local venues. She is represented by The Studio Shop Gallery in Burlingame, California. Her art is widely collected and hangs in prominent private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
