Biography

Bonnie Dubbin Askowitz is a South Florida artist whose work has appeared in art exhibitions and quilt shows worldwide.  Among these are: The Quilted Surface, Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio, and Palais Rastede, Oldenburg Germany; Tactile Architecture, Washington, D.C.; Women Waxing, Women Weaving, Bloomington, IN;  the American Craft Council Exhibit in Hendersonville, NC;   Museum of Southern Florida; and the U. S. Department of The Interior, Reston, VA.

Her quilts have also appeared in various publications including: the Washington Post, The Miami Herald, and Rosie Magazine.

Art has always been important to Bonnie who, in mid-life, found fabric and thread with all its visual and tactile sensibilities.  While she has made traditional bed quilts, she concentrates on art quilt wall hangings, often with environmental, spiritual or feminist themes.  Most of these wall hangings, figurative or abstract, are autobiographical in some way.  She works with commercial, hand dyed and painted fabric, and fabric she creates using the computer.

A Miami native, she was educated in Miami Public Schools, attended the University of Florida, and graduated from the University of Miami with a BA in English.  Her children are Tony, Lisa, Andrea and Vicky.  Rachel, Danielle, Natalie, Natasha and Sebastian are her grandchildren.  A sun-bird, she lives “At Witz’ End” in Miami, FL and at “Still Life on Woodpecker” in Washington, NH with her partner, Bob Spitz and Scout, the Wonder Dog.
