I grew up in Connecticut and went to college in the Boston area, attending Chamberlayne Jr. College and Mass College of Art, graduating with a B.F.A. majoring in painting. My work career was in floral design and retail . After getting married and raising two children, I now live in Marietta GA.
Trained in the fine arts, I had the opportunity to experience many of the fine arts – drawing , painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and many different mediums. I really love it all, but painting has always been my focus. I started with oils in college, later on working in watercolor and now currently working with pastels. What is exciting to me , is that I can combine all three mediums, using watercolor and oil paint as underpaintings for the pastel. I am nature inspired , so most of my images come from nature. I consider my work “pieces of me” as they come from my heart. I consider myself a full time artist, drawing and painting almost every day. I am a current member of the Southeastern Pastel Society and have been juried into the Awesome Art, Pastel 2015 show (juror Nancy Nowak) and the Southeastern Pastel Society 2016 17th International Exhibition (juror Richard McKinley).
I currently sell my work privately and through local art shows. You can see my work on FB at Bonnie Morgan Hyde fine art. I also have a blog, where I write more in depth about my paintings.
