My name is L.A. Bonds and I am a board member on the Norcross Public Arts Commission. Six years ago my husband and I were influenced to move to the beautiful Norcross community because of its commitment to diversity and family life.

I was born in Detroit, Michigan and raised in a home where artistic expression was celebrated.

As a young girl, I can recall times when my mother painted beautiful murals on my bedroom walls; my father sang before large audiences; my sister attended dance classes, and I used my Nikon camera to capture photos that won a HBO photography competition. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to experience first-hand many artistic mediums.
When I was in middle school, my parents enrolled me in a performing arts school which helped me develop my creative skills and love for this form of expression.

As an adult, the performing arts and graphic design became my special creative niches.

My love for performing arts has afforded me opportunities to write and produce stage plays, short films, feature films and even work with A-List actors and singers from around the world. My design work has provided me a platform to be commissioned by cities, corporations, organizations and music artist.

While I am humbled by the doors that have been opened for me, it is my desire to create an avenue for other artists to voice their creative expressions.

I am honored to use my voice on the Norcross Public Arts Commission as we endeavor to engage our community in embracing creative expression, diversity, and mutual respect. Art is community, art is for everyone.

"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." Pablo Picasso

Art has no boundaries and is an outward expression of our inner secret, a gift we all have. There are traditionally excepted forms of art; and there are kinds of art that on a surface may not seem like an art form, but once finished - hold our attention and awe us; and there are times when the art is not about the end result, but it's beauty and it's uniqueness is only experienced though the process of it's creation.

Here is a video of a unique and beautiful art form that is mesmerizing to watch and results are unexpected and beautiful.Pontus Jansson / PJ is a rockstar! Watch him stack stones and balance rocks with nothing more than gravity. Permission granted by Pontus Jansson. • • • FOLLO...
