Since she was a small girl, Bonnie was always intrigued by the natural beauty of flowers and how they can make other people so happy. She realised from a young age that she had a natural gift in arranging flowers and enhancing their beauty even more. Over her life she has studied floristry, and always kept up with industry trends and new skills. This means that Bonnie can cater for all styles – from traditional to the most modern leading-edge designs. Exotic and unusual flowers can be sourced ensuring that you find exactly what you are looking for. Flowers are a gift from nature, and with someone as passionate about them as Bonnie you will receive the personalised service, style, and individuality for every special occasion.

The Grafton Regional Gallery has an active volunteer group of Friends (FoGG) who help Gallery staff at events. They sponsor the biennial Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award which is the gallery’s flagship art prize. This award assists developing the ongoing gallery’s collection of contemporary Australian drawing through fund raising events and membership subscriptions.

This is a free event, bookings are essential, COVID restrictions apply, and you are invited to book through Eventbrite.
