Stacey Bonham, Pella, IA Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement Hello. My name is Stacey Bonham. I was born in Nebraska and now reside in Iowa. I have always had a passion for creativity and have been creating art since I was able to hold a crayon. I am naturally drawn toward using vibrant and rich colors, hoping to share warmth and happiness in my pieces.
I first began by selling my items at craft shows with my family. Facing health battles head-on, I have realized the importance that art plays in my life. It is my own type of therapy. My art helps me to convey my passion for life and love for the simple blessings. Looking back on my life thus far, I realize that God has had a hand in each step I have taken. Without the grace of God, I would not be here today. My spirit and passion for life are conveyed in each piece I create.
Thank you for the opportunity to share my talents with you!
