Bonnie Wakeman

Bonnie Norling Wakeman is a Fine Artist, Illustrator, Muralist and Sculptor. She and her husband Joe, (Joe’s Fauxs), established their business “Norling Wakeman Studios” in the mid 90’s, producing hundreds of murals, bas relief murals, faux finishes and decorative painting in local homes and businesses. They have since expanded across the Rocky Mnt region, and nationally as far as Florida and California. She was chosen to show 6 Portrait murals at a Peace conference in Pari, Italy, has won local print competitions and has received “best artist” awards, along with numerous newspaper and magazine articles.

Bonnie has not only become known for her beautiful Mural Painting and unique Sculptural relief murals, she also receives Fine Art Commissions in Oil, Acrylic, and Bas Relief.

Bas Relief

Her desire to “pass it on” is her main motivation for starting her Bas Relief & Cover Plate Painting Workshops in 2011:  “I want artists to know they can expand their creativity and businesses with these fun and rewarding art forms!”

Bonnie has also produced an instructional bas relief video as well as an instructional cover plate painting video.  She has also instructed Artists over the years, in Portraiture, Pastel Painting, and Mural Painting.

Bonnie will be teaching at the May 2012 Faux Retreat.
