Elizabeth Tuckwell Paintings

Liz Tuckwell is a painter currently living in Chicago, Illinois. Shortly after graduating with a BA in Spanish from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, she relocated to Amsterdam, The Netherlands where she dedicated herself to her artwork and her love of travel. After nearly ten years of creating art abroad, she returned to her hometown of Chicago in 2005. The main focus of her work is oil painting, which can most accurately be described as Abstract Expressionism.

She states, “ I truly began my painting career while living in Amsterdam with little more than cheap oil paints from a local Dutch market, a potato knife and paper.  Later, I discovered the use of brushes, I discovered the canvas and the story begins to write itself from there. My paintings are stories that burst forth from within me, often times telling me a story about myself. If we see art as an investigation into being, then my paintings are my investigation into my being; I paint what I feel, or rather what I am feeling comes through on each canvas.”

Dark Island City

Dark Island City Screenprints and Illustrations

Growing up I always had a fascination about houses/building and how they were constructed. In high school I took a vocation architecture/drafting class to learn how to draw and design houses. After high school I went to Suny Farmingdale on Long Island and majored in Architecture/Engineering Construction Management. I had worked in a architectural/drafting office from 2000-2010. While their I had worked my way up from organizing paperwork and drawing simple things like site plans and maps to working on proposed projects and different types of commercial properties. As the years went on the love for doing that type of work had slowly started to leave me and I was looking for a change in what I did. To this day I still love building and maps but now I just look at them in a different point of view.

Bonnie

Bonnie Bath and Beauty

In February of 2010, Chicago fine artist Sarah deHebreard turned her focus from painting pictures to making lip balm. Her naturally nourishing products harness the goodness that nature provides in new and creative ways. Her cosmetics make use of natural compounds in complex and luxurious formulations. Sarah is constantly developing new formulas and searching for new and interesting ways to combine nature and science.

As a self-described micro-manager with an eye for detail, Sarah handles every aspect of Bonnie on her own; including graphic and web design, product development, marketing, production, and packaging.

So who is Bonnie?

Bonnie was the cat that Sarah grew up with. She passed away at the age of 19 in the summer of 1999, when Sarah was only 17. When searching for a name for the business, Sarah wanted something simple which evoked the feel of the brand, but that had a story behind it. Bonnie came to mind, and it was clear that it was the perfect choice.
