Wayne Bonney, a local digital artist, spends most of his free

Bonney first became drawn to digital art 10 years ago after
being inspired by other artists’ use of surrealism and landscapes to create visual nirvana.
“I take a lot of things from my life history and incorporate them within my art,” Bonney said. “I
call it my art voice.”
