About the Artists
Bonny Hawley has been capturing spirit in her works for 35 years. The large scale mixed-media artworks of this Naples artist are the large-wall solution for private and corporate clients. Bonny weaves from the fabrics of ancient worlds and threads of her imagination to create her mysterious and flowing spiritual works. Her art celebrates life and stimulates the spirit. The work consists of acrylic, mixed-media collage, oil glazing, and cold-wax media and involves mono-printing, stenciling, metallic paints, gold and silver leaf, and hand-painted papers on raw silk and linen. The artwork is sold and exhibited in fine galleries around the country and featured in private and corporate collections in the US and in Europe.

Levi Hayes currently resides in Bonita Springs where his focus is on expressing a multifaceted vision of spirit and experience upon canvas, as well as through other fine art media. He translates emotion through his artistic abilities with structure, balance, color, texture and over-all composition. His wish is for his art to teach or tell stories of spirit, from not only his own spiritual and cultural background, but from that of others—in literal as well as in abstract ways. His belief is that everything holds a common thread.
