About Bonnie Druker

I am an Artist and a Television News Producer. I went to Parsons School of Design in New York City and studied art and fashion. In a twist…I fell into the news business. Instead of interning in the wardrobe department at one of the major broadcast networks in New York as planned, the head of interns placed me in the news division. I’ve been covering local, national and international stories ever since.

One of those stories turned out to be a Global Pandemic. And that’s when I looked back to my Parsons roots and started painting again. The much needed creative outlet helped me process my own stress and anxiety from reporting on COVID and living through it.

These days, when not at work you can find me in my art studio listening to music, mixing colors and layering those colors on canvases. My layering symbolizes a lesson I’ve learned along the way about humanity. We are all complex and no one is defined by only one coat.

My mother Linda was an Artist and she continues to inspire the creativity in me every single day. In honor of my mother I will donate ten percent of all my sales to The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.
