After graduating from USM with a BS in Art Education, in 1993 Bonnie taught art for several years in both public and private schools. Creating, designing and making artist’s books has been her passion for most of her life.
Bonnie also works with fused glass and is working on a series of glass mandalas. One of her intentions is to create a series of glass and paper books that are sculptural. Highly accomplished in many glass mediums, her work ranges from full window and wall installations for residential and commercial spaces to finely detailed items such as kitchen tiles and one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets, earrings and table top decor.
Faulkner's glass work is very distinctive as she has mastered the ability to incorporate dichroic, fused, hand blown and stained glass into one creation. She finds combining these techniques opens up placement for glass objects in every part of one's home, where even limited lighting accentuates the work. She has taught glass workshops throughout Maine at Haystack Mountain School of Arts & Crafts, Maine Art Glass, Maine Art Education and Bowdoin College as well as private classes. She is represented by a number of galleries throughout New England and exclusively in New York by Figureworks Gallery.
Rapper turned teaching artist with the goal of keeping the performing arts alive for the youth of Portland.
