About me

Bonni Jane Lion artist


Its nice to see you visit. My name is Bonni and I create all the Art here, well obviously.
I’ve been putting pen to paper nearly since I could remember and I haven’t really stopped so here I am now, bringing my passion into the world to share with you.

Have a look around, and pop over to my online shop if you would like to look at my prints I have available along with some stickers to spice up your home.

About my work –

Art is a story, each piece is a story, and you get to read it the way you want.
I try to be obscure about the meanings of my work because I want you to find the meaning within yourself, as silly as it may sound viewing my work is a personal experience for each individual.

And the best part for me is finding out what that is, so –
What do you think?

What they said

Where did You Go?

Pictured is one of my prints “where did you go?” beautifully framed and hung up on the wall of a coast side home in San Diego CA.

“I love everything about Bonni’s art! The themes and ocean scenery really resonate with me as someone who grew up near the beach and the fine detail in her work just makes it extra special and visually very beautiful. Every time I buy art from Bonni I get a gorgeous surprise, whether it be an extra sticker (or ten) or a hand written note – her parcels are a joy to unwrap. I hope she keeps making art forever and I will single-handedly support her work until I am living in poverty”
