Bonnie Gerdin Hautamaki is a Colorado fine artist whose portraiture captures the essence of people and animals and whose landscapes draw out the uncommon beauty of each scene.
After a career in human factors engineering, the classical methods of art captured her attention. Drawing was simply the use of angles, shapes and value to capture an accurate likeness. Painting became a puzzle to solve: color mixing, and using a 2D canvas to represent 3D life. With her history of connecting people to technology, she was now intrigued with the opportunity to invite the viewer into a visual story. Bonnie now merges her technical background with her creative strengths to solve visual problems as she joyfully directs her energies into the expressive world of art.
