Bonnie Johnson Stolzmann is a Denver based fine artist and illustrator. She strives to ignite the imagination of her viewers while also truthfully capturing her subjects. She dreams of writing and illustrating children’s books with her two young daughters.

Bonnie’s scientific illustrations have been published in association with The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology, The University of California, Harvard University and The Jepson Herbarium. Commissions, original artworks and archival prints are available via e-mail at BonnieStolzmann@gmail.com

Artist Statement- Being a member of contemporary American society tends to flabbergast me on a regular basis. I paint about it with hope that my viewers and I can be flabbergasted together, potentially creating a community of shared understanding and kindness.
