The Artist Liz Bonser

It's actually weird for me to say I'm an  ARTIST. But that's what I am as of December 2018.  How did I get here?  Here's how.

In 2015 I retired (for a second time I might add), after a sales career in various markets which included National Sales Manager positions in manufacturing, training and development and God forbid Banking.  I moved to Sharbot lake in 2011 from the GTA when I retired. The first time.  My husband still travelled to Markham for the next 7 years which enabled us to own a beautiful home on Sharbot lake.  After 2 years I was bored and then worked in Kingston for the Canadian Cancer Society as their Volunteer Coordinator having responsibility for various fund raising activities.  In 2015 I retired...again. 

 

In 2016 I met some amazing women which finally made my transition from city girl to rural woman so much more fun. One lady asked if we would be interested in going to a PAVERPOL workshop near Ottawa. Yes, Yes and Yes. Anything to get out and be creative. Well the rest is literally history.

I took the Paverpol beginner workshop and loved it.  I had no idea that I was artsy.  I then took the more advanced HERON workshop and I was hooked.  I spoke with the CPI, (Certified Paverpol Instructor) how I could become an Instructor.  I then took the CPI training program and within 3 months became certified to teach.  The training covered all the amazing Paverpol products and their uses.

So then I thought...why not go all the way. I converted my home garage into my current art studio where I can deliver these amazing courses. I hold various workshops from beginner to advanced utilizing various products.

That's how I became an Artist.  What a great journey I've been on. Now 70, mother of 2 and grandmother of 4 I've found my passion in life.  If I can do this so can you!  Call me or email, love to hear from you.  Liz
