Bonnie Cargol

Bonnie Cargol is a lifelong resident of Washington State. She earned a bachelor of science and a master of science from the University of Washington. She has worked in biomedical research at the University and has taught biology and chemistry at community colleges.

She is now retired, and, after raising three children, devotes her time to art. She has been an artist since childhood and has explored many media, but now paints exclusively in watercolor. Her work has been exhibited and received awards in many shows throughout the Puget Sound area. She also has done professional commissions for real estate development.

She has been active in developing community art projects such as the Proctor Art Fest, the 6th Avenue Art on the Ave, and was responsible for the Proctor Art Walk 2007 and 2008.

Her favorite subjects are landscapes and waterscapes, as she finds beauty and emotional appeal in nature, and always finds a challenge in capturing its allure.

She occasionally enjoys taking on the same challenge with city architecture. Her techniques involve pouring, splattering, and conventional brush work to achieve an inviting and aesthetic picture. All of her work is original, painted from imagination, on site, or from reference photos taken by her, her friends, or family.
