Hi, I’m Bonnie Glendinning.

Much like you, I have known for a long time that art is in my DNA. At the young age of 5, I discovered this part of myself at my local art store. Since then I have been inspired by art and artists.

Though I did not pursue my own art until I was in college, I was lucky to have parents that valued the arts and introduced me to museums and art regularly. This reinforced my natural interest in art and I learned how impactful it can be to our culture and our communities.

I earned my BFA in Studio Art focusing on Photography (analog not digital) by experimenting with mixed medias, hand coloring my photos, and working in the darkroom with new techniques and papers. My senior year I was invited to be in the group show with my “In My Dreams” photo series.

Ultimately, I chose to be in the creative field of graphic design and marketing for the past 25 years. And, this is where our stories intertwine. I have come full circle with my love of art and artists, such as yourself, through my brand + community strategies for artists and inspiring you to thriving success.

My mission with The Thriving Artist is to empower artists to live and work prosperously.
