Meet Bonnita Moaby

We are very excited to welcome a talented new member to our design team today! Get to know Bonnita Moaby (or Bonnita Doodles, as you may know her in the art world).

Even from a young age Bonnita remembers spending hours colouring in or drawing. This carried on into her school years and beyond. Going on to do Graphic Design at a BA level she achieved her degree and set up her own business which has been running for over 6 years and won the prestigious award from Theo Paphitis of Dragons Den for #SBS (SmallBusiness Sunday).

Running along side this business Bonnita took up doodling once again and after numerous requests for a colouring book she self published her first book, the then got signed by Blue Star Publishing. Since signing with Blue Star she has also been signed with The Art Group and won the #WOW award (women on Wednesday) from Jacqueline Gold.

“I love to doodle just about anything, Zentangles, freeform, graphic and more. I love eclectic vintage and steampunk and I love being around colour”

“I have now fallen in love with with doing photos realistic portraits and Water colour paintings using Spectrum Noir’s amazing Aqua pens & Aqua Tints”

Bonnita has made a name for herself producing colourful water colour paintings, ink illustrations and graphite portraits. Her signature splash helps to set her style apart. With her love of Spectrum Bonnita has developed a technique and style using their products.
