For over 20 years, Bonnie Sol’s breathtaking oils have been inspired by nature.
Even as a child, growing up on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi, you could find her either outdoors or in her room, drawing the world around her on sketch pads. Since then, no matter where Bonnie has made her home, nature has continued to be her inspiration.
Bonnie Sol grew up on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi, inspired by the world around her. She attended high school in the U.S. Virigin Islands and graduated from Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts (BA in Anthropology), and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (BFA with concentration in Painting).
Bonnie has been interested in art since childhood. She loves nature and wants to depict what she sees. Her preferred medium for professional work is oil paint. She loves the buttery consistency of the paint, especially while blending colors on the canvas. For enjoyment, she really likes teaching with acrylics. She has a home art studio in Hilo, Hawaiʻi out of which she works and teaches. She also provides private home lessons and group paint events. She has artwork shown in seven galleries island wide.
Bonnie’s superpower is creativity and making art. She can sketch at a rapid pace, bring nature to life on a canvas and has the power to facilitate a creative space so other people can learn and do art.
Bonnie loves teaching kids with art and knows the importance of positive informative outlets for parents and kids.
