Bonnie Teitelbaum

BIOGRAPHY

I was born in Tucson, Arizona into a military family.  We moved every few years so I had the opportunity to live in Japan, the Philippines and Germany and many states before attending college in Flagstaff, Arizona. During that time, I met and 6 years later married Alan Teitelbaum. Since then we moved across the country and back finally settling in Santa Fe, NM in 1992.

Art was always a hobby and first went professional when I opened Jameson-Teitelbaum Designs, a graphic design firm. Ran this business for many years, with a small staff and corporate clients like Hewlett Packard.

I changed professionally from commercial art to fine art in 2001 and entered a gallery in Santa Fe in 2002.  Working in my home it was decided to build an art studio on the property and we did that in 2008. That is where you will find me these days.

I create paintings with a sublime, sensual beauty, using strong colors in a delicate manner to lure you into a zen world of internal conversation. These images reflect my love of nature and peace of mind. It is my intention to evoke a memory, a feeling, a friend or place in time. I want to connect with the viewer on a level only they can know, making the painting their own.
