Patricia Kuhn Bonita is a lifelong resident of the Boston area. As a child, she marveled at the wonderful masterpieces in the great museums in her neighborhood and felt fortunate to be exposed to them from an early age. Inspired by the beauty that surrounded her, she entered an art contest for the Boston Globe, at the age of nine, and won first prize. Although she wanted to study art in college, life’s twists and turns found her pursing a degree in nursing. It is now time for her to focus on her first love, ART. She appreciates the beauty of the world and can find it in simple, unheralded places. When she paints, she strives to capture a moment of simple beauty with oils.
