Bonnie Walters

Bonnie Walters was born in Springs, matriculated in Bloemfontein and achieved a BA (English and Psychology) at Stellenbosch University. After careers in advertising, nance and property, she enrolled at the Wits Technikon School of Art (now the University of Johannesburg) in 1996 and acquired a BTech honours (cum laude) in 2001.

After lecturing in drawing at Wits Tech, Bonnie became a full-time artist in 2006. She lives and works in Johannesburg and is currently on sabbatical from doing her Masters degree in Fine Arts. She successfully curates her own solo exhibitions and participates in joint exhibitions – including Jaco Sieberhagen – and GIBS Charity Auctions.

She has a devoted interest in the communicative and healing power of art. Her drawings represent a visual and psychological-based report, amplifying instances, memories and childhood experiences, which are universal. Her works are ambivalent: they often deal with and express personal memories and inner longings, or they awaken in the viewers their own lived experiences. Bonnie’s work shows great skill and confidence that can only be achieved through a prolific work ethic and all-consuming commitment.

Her art is held in private collections both in South Africa and internationally.
