Bonnie Kelso finds inspiration for her works of art through observations of the natural world. As a lover of adventure and travel, she has had the opportunity to experience many unique and wild places. Through backpacking, climbing, canyoneering, and scuba diving, she interacts with nature in a tactile way. She documents her adventures with photography and words, then directly draws from these references when creating her works of art. Like keepsakes, her works are personal tributes to natural objects and events.
