I'm so delighted you're here!
My goal is to help as many people as possible enjoy Coloured Pencil Art, increase their confidence and realise their dreams.
My Ignite members' community is carefully curated and designed to help you learn everything you need to know in order to draw realistic animals in coloured pencils.
I show you how to understand colour theory and the materials available to you as a coloured pencil artist; how to get to grips with the different methods and techniques of drawing, practicing and honing your skills, whilst also considering your confidence and mindset to get the most out of yourself and your artwork.

"Bonny teaches how, why, color theory, materials explanations, and adds so much more depth to everything and at the same time….HOW EASILY DONE! She gives students everything they need from supplies needed, photos, line drawings, encouragement, resources, and more to complete, ready-to-watch courses. The Live class sessions she shares/and/or draw live while we discuss, question and draw along are especially fun education! We get to see and hear how a professional artists looks at subjects, evaluates drawing, values, colors etc. and actually plans a drawing. You can't belong to her student group without improving; even after all my experiences, I am learning daily from things she does and says"
