Bonnie Ralston is a visual artist who works in clay and on paper. Her art is process-driven, and serves as the record of her inquiry into personal themes of identity, loss, and transformation.
Her formal careers in design and environmental education inform Bonnie's artistic approach and subject matter. The natural sciences provide inspiration and departure points for her work through exploration of topics as varied as invertebrate metamorphosis and geologic time. The artifacts that emerge from this process function as accomplice, witness, and response to Bonnie's interrogation of self.
She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
