Bonnie Lee MacDonald has focused upon the production of diptychs. The first uses a trace method, also known as direct drawing. The second print is from the same plate and uses a reductive method. Many images are based upon old photographs found in a junk store. Although the images originate from the same image they are frequently different in emphasis and thus the meaning of the image shifts.


Bonnie Lee MacDonald recently returned to the MGNE. She has taught Communication and Film Studies at Rhode Island College in Providence, RI for the past nineteen years and still enjoys her students and the process of teaching. The “itch” to make art has returned and she has several ideas for new monotype strategies.
