Bonnie Lambert

"My oil paintings bring to life the vibrant, fluid dance between nature and energized urban neighborhoods during the magic hour."

Oil painter Bonnie Lambert is excited by intense color and deep contrast. A vibrant palette and expressive brushstrokes are her tools for rendering familiar urban scenes. Among her inspirations are frenetic rush hour traffic; quiet neighborhoods sinking into twilight; hectic urban activity; and power lines and telephone poles slicing the sky into geometric shapes.

Lambert uses her own photographs as inspiration for her oil paintings. Then, on canvas, she overpaints color upon color in multiple layers until she achieves a luminescent depth and dynamic impasto.

With a BFA in theater from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Lambert was a professional theater actress for more than 17 years. Moving to California, she studied oil painting at the Art Center School of Design, Pasadena. Besides her life as an actor, her most significant influence as a fine artist is her mentor: internationally exhibited, museum-collected artist Margaret Garcia.
