Bonnie Folkins

"I look for intimate subjects, generally with a quiet, personal theme. A little dory, for example, hidden under a wharf, away from all other activity, is an inspiration to me. There, I am able to find a sense of solitude with the shifting waters, amidst the wet, dark, tar-scented timbers."
