Being green minded, Bonnie transforms CD and DVD’s into works of art, which she calls DiskArt. Bonnie uses CD/DVD disks that were old, worn and bad. So instead of them going into the garbage, they have found their way to her and then turned into cool art.
The beginning of each DiskArt piece starts with canvas being glued and trimmed to each individual disk then painted randomly with acrylic colors. Handwritten; using dimensional fabric paints are TV/Movie/Theatre titles, facts and quotes. The disks are also layered to give the faces some depth, using different sizes of bottle caps. The portraits are finished with a three-color oil paint
