Bonnie works on large canvases prepped with several layers of just about anything she can get her hands on, including molding paste, dirt, paint and paper.  Using her hands, she slathers acrylic and oil paint over the surface, creating the delicious texture that forms the foundation for her figurative paintings of horses, butterflies and figures. 

This lively artist is a self-called “true cowgirl” and when not painting in her studio, she is playing, riding and working the land with her beloved family, dogs and horses on her farm.   We are especially taken by her equine series, which portray her own  horses.  Bonnie says:  “I love to watch the horses and then paint them from a split-second moment in time that captures their power, personality, thoughts and intensity.”  Bonnie has served as the official artist for the famed Atlanta Steeplechase.

We also love Bonnie’s graphite drawings, which are a unique process. Working with heavy archival paper, she uses a special industrial graphite from China, normally used to cool heavy machinery.  She applies this thick, glittery substance with her fingers then goes through the entire process again with a graphite pencil. 

The artist is also driven and motivated by her love of nature and her personal connection to God, which she shares with her viewers by including a cross in each painting.  Sometimes the cross is hidden within the painting or sometimes it is a bold element from which the painting develops. 

Bonnie Beauchamp Cooke studied at the University of Georgia and The Atlanta College of Art, receiving her BFA from there in painting and drawing in 1991. She maintains a commitment to the arts community by serving on the board of The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (of which she is a founding member) and The Hambidge Center of North Georgia. Her works are in many collections nationwide and have won numerous best in show awards throughout the South.
