Bonnie Latham began her art career at a very young age. Inspired by her creative family and their love of the outdoors, she paints nature, landscape, animals, birds, and the occasional portrait. She works in watercolour, acrylic, oil, inks, graphite/charcoal and others, however watercolours have become her medium of choice. She achieves a unique quality of depth and shape in her work, drawing the viewer into her paintings. Bonnie works in a assortment of sizes and formats, ranging from larger Miniature paintings to very small works rendered less than one square inch.
The original meaning of the term miniature refers to technique and not size - it means to paint very detailed. Often it's called painting "in miniature" and it has been stated that a piece of art that is as large as a wall could be painted in miniature. My family and I paint in that style exclusively and have done extensive research as well as talking to quite a few experts about it.
