A few kind words from my students on Patreon. You can find more testimonials here.
"Without Bonny I would not of achieved the progression and the confidence to try using different techniques, deciding from eye the colours that I can use and also allowing my brain to not put too much detail in at the beginning but to be more bold. My journey is still in its infancy, but Bonny's encouragement and genuine love of people and helping them achieve only inspires me to improve further. And, her amazing drawings are what I hope to achieve. Thank you for everything you do, Bonny!"

"When Bonny started draw-along sessions to help folks who felt alone during the pandemic, it was an eye opener for me to see how differently artists drew the same subject. I also realised that I still had so much to learn. Because of the generosity and patience of Bonny, I was able to improve my technique. I continue to strive to get better, making a conscious effort to go lightly, layer and be patient. Most importantly, trust Bonny. The woman knows what she's doing and she will steer you in the right direction!"

"Bonny’s teaching is structured in such a way you are creating incredible art before you know it. I never knew I could draw. Now I am encouraging others to try it. Moreover the community surrounding her is one of the most positive and uplifting places to be, supportive and nurturing. Bonny herself is the kindest, most generous teacher with her time and her expertise. She, without fail, will make you feel that anything is possible."
