We work as a team in creating these pieces. David takes the Nature photographs that form the foundation of the art, while Bonnie focuses on color-collage dimensions, along with naming and writing about the images. We use Adobe Photoshop to re-size and collage the photographs so that the beauty of the Earth elements is emphasized. When Nature’s organic patterns are re-mixed into these new forms, the resulting images shine with a special light.
People tell us that looking at our art is like taking a mini-vacation in Nature. The images bring the vibrant energies of outdoors onto the walls indoors. The simple elegance and wide range of colors in these artworks allows them to fit equally well into to homes, offices, hospitality and wellness environments. We have created custom images for clients such as the Washington National Cathedral as well individuals. Our goal in making art is to delight the eye and uplift the spirit. We hope you will get as much joy from viewing our images as we get from creating them.
"These images go beyond the realm of magic and beauty. Bonnie Bell and David Todd have ways of bringing the entire universe, with all its majesty and complexity, into a very tangible and specific experience that is personal and soul touching while at the same time connecting the viewer to the cosmos. I am in awe of the extraordinary gifts they have for truly celebrating the richness and depth of soul and spirit. These works will become an important part of history going forward, as they capture things far beyond the physical world and make them accessible to so many, in such a beautiful form."
---Laurel Burch, artist, designer
Bonnie Bell, after graduating with high honors from Harvard University in 1971, spent two decades traveling the world as director of education for an international non-profit organization. During those years, she also served as an acquisitions agent for a private collector of traditional Hindu and Buddhist fine art. In 1992, Bonnie received a grant from the Human Potential Foundation to start The Center for Sacred Arts. As a collage artist, her work took a giant leap forward, in 1997, when she began her artistic collaboration with David. Bonnie worked actively with art in her recovery from stage 4 cancer, and frequently writes articles on the topic of art and healing.
David Todd began his career as a writer. From 1976-1991, he was a writer for, then editor and publisher of the Dawn Horse Press. He was the founder of the Great Tradition book distribution company. In 1990, he co-founded and was president of the Siegler Mountain Group, a software development company. Since 1997, he has partnered with Bonnie in the creation of their artwork and publications. David is the photographer and photoshop master of the team
Bonnie and David work side by side in creating each piece. Our artistic visions meet and blend in the creation of our energy-enhanced images.
We are married and live in Tallahassee, Florida.
