Artist Bonnie Bews works in Hinterglas; a traditional form of glass painting which dates back to the 3rd century Rome. 

Bonnie learned the technique of ‘painting on the reverse side of glass’ in Germany. This is where she apprenticed to a well known Bavarian Glass painter, Rudolf Schmid. 

Since this three month apprentice in 1992, Bonnie’s visions have been solely expressed on glass.  The medium used by the artist is a unique combination of graphite and watercolour that allows her to achieve soft delicate lines and translucent colours.

Bonnie draws and seeks her inspiration from Muskoka’s natural environment, it’s brought energy to her paintings, not only with ideas, but also by the way she perceives and applies paint to glass in a whimsical way. Her working studio / gallery is in a century old Livery situated in the historical area of Bracebridge called ‘Muskokaville’.
