Her new GALLERYpreneur programs provide art galleries with the innovative, “out-of-the-box” marketing techniques and business strategies necessary to approach their business development and marketing challenges creatively in order to thrive in the changing art world.
An artist herself, Bonnie is also the founder of Dakini Dreams. In her new series, Soul Ancestors, vintage wooden cases, masks, and found objects are assembled into shrine-like icons that explore the issues of time, life, death, rebirth, transformation, and cultural identity.
