If you've reached this page you've probably been directed through our fine art website for Gallery Bonuccelli. There you probably found our very official sounding bios. Here, we'd like to tell you a little bit about our personal lives, what inspires our art and our long standing friendship, so you can understand us better and hopefully be inspired to follow our great adventures. Maybe you'll even consider investing in our photography to be enjoyed on your walls for years to come.
One day I noticed Dominic's photography in a cafe downtown. I looked across the room and saw a very cool looking dude with a shaved head and leather jacket. I smiled and proceeded to look at the amazing imagery adorning the walls. They were these beautiful landscapes of Spain and Italy with people smiling, laughing, dancing and joyful. They were full of color and energy and they instantly made me want to be there, to be in that moment, to feel that happiness with those people. I took the artist's card and sent an email that night. 'Your work is beautiful,' I told him, 'keep up the good work.'
We met three days later for a cup of joe and in walks the edgy dude in the leather jacket. We've been friends ever since, traveling to far off places together, riding on motorcycles, taking selfies on every mountain, beach and trail we can. Fast forward 21 years and D as I like to call him, is my best friend. He's like my brother from another mother. We do sometimes get asked if we're siblings because we have very similar features and senses of humor. This makes us laugh.
silly good times
Personally, Dominic resides in Tucson AZ where he loves to lay on warm rocks like a lizard, purchase endless iron dinosaurs for his giant desert yard and take care of his new puppy, Petey. Because he spent over 25 years shooting for famous travel writer Rick Steves, Nic has endless stunning images from his travels. If you have a destination in mind that you love and want a print of, Nic most likely has photographed it. Dominic is not only a photographer but a graphic designer, music video creator and musician. He also speaks five languages and will challenge anyone to a dual of bocci ball, a horse back ride or a motorcycle trip.
I reside in a small town north of San Diego called Encinitas. I've lived in Seattle and Los Angeles, but San Diego is home and also where my family is. I'm a proud aunt of two teenage girls and I cycle with my 72 year old mom every Sunday. She kills me on the hills. I also love animals so I pet sit regularly and volunteer at the San Diego Zoo Global helping in the conservation and adventure travel departments, I've been working in the advertising and branding arena for over 17 years so my fine art is my labor of love. I'm also a writer and have self published my second book on Amazon called, 'Carry Me Home.' a travel story about faith, courage and letting go.
In 2018, we decided to collaborate on the creation of Gallery Bonuccelli, so we could share our most favorite pieces from our travels with a larger audience. Because we don't live in the same city, an online gallery seemed the best route for us. We were very excited to find Art Storefronts to help us fulfill orders while we are away, since we both do travel quite a bit. In fact, Dominic is scheming a motorcycle road trip to Argentina as we speak. We hope our imagery brings you as much joy as our photography and our friendship has brought us.
