Born in the west coast highlands of Scotland, printmaker Bonnie Kenneil first worked in fashion, following a diploma in Tailoring at the London College of Fashion.
Self taught screen printing on fabric she combined her own fabric designs with garment construction. Through membership to an open access fabric screen printing studio in London Bonnie is still producing work on calico, as well as collections of T-shirt designs, silk scarves, cushion covers and fabric repeats.
Becoming aware of natural/sacred geometry as form behind nature the practice of geometry became an important inspiration and is reflected in much of her work as is the effect of repeat pattern. American Pop art, international Op art, and 20th century culture is also seen as influencing Bonnie’s work.
