My name is Bonnie Young and I was born and raised in Muskoka area cottage country. I have always had a fondness for animals and grew up on a farm. Now I enjoy capturing many of them on my canvas. I work in acrylics on stretched canvas, canvas board and wood, in a semi realistic to impressionistic style. My subject material varies from pet portraits, wild and domestic animals to various plants and flowers. I have chosen acrylic paint as my medium of choice for the flexibility of its use, as well as the durability. On my inside outside paintings I use exterior paint on wood and seal the surface with water base urethane.
