Photography: Julianne Bonnet

Julianne Bonnet is a writer, photographer, soap maker, and digital artist who draws inspiration from nature and concepts of emotional healing. She holds an MFA in English and Creative Writing from Mills College as well as a credential to teach college composition.

She can often be found wandering the hiking trails of Santa Cruz County with her camera slung across her back looking “micro” for breathtaking moments of quiet discovery. While her photographs almost never have people in them, her photographic art composites are one hundred percent people-centered and were shown in this year’s Open Studios Santa Cruz County.

Julianne grew up in Canada, New York, and Palo Alto, but was never home until she moved to five acres in beautiful Ben Lomond where she lives with her goats, chickens, ducks, and dogs as well as her human family.
