About Bonita D Rozander
Bonnie’s interest in the use of textiles as an art medium goes back to her early childhood. By the age of 6, she knew how to knit, crochet, embroider and sew. During her school years, she learned to draw, paint, sculpt and carve wood. When she retired from the corporate world in 1999, quilting became her passion and within 2 years she was teaching basic quilting techniques. Bonnie took numerous quilting workshops with internationally known instructors to broaden her knowledge and sharpen her skills. She completed surface design and dyeing classes at Maiwa, experimental hand and machine stitching at Gail Harker’s Creative Studies Centre in LaConnor and an online felting workshop with Fiona Duthie. Inspired by nature, Bonnie is experimenting with natural dyes and plant material to create impressions (eco-printing) on silk, cotton and wool. She continues to use a variety of art mediums and surface design techniques to enhance her work.
