Tom Pacheco and Bonita Lowe

          Back to DIRECTORY


Tom  was born and lived in Massachusetts for fifty (50) years. After graduating from Rhode Island School of Photography, he owned and operated a full service photography studio for twenty-five ( 25 ) years. Since moving to the Carolinas, he spends most of his time doing fine art photography, but is still available for commissioned portrait work.

CONGRATULATIONS, Tom! Tom recently received Second Place and a Merit Award at the 2017 Gaston County Art Guild Photography Show at the Arts on Main Gallery in Gastonia, NC.

Tom now resides in Mount Holly, N C.





Bonita is a Mount Holly, N C artist and lifelong resident of the Carolinas. Her love of art goes back to childhood and is alive and well. Her drawings and paintings reflect the beauty she sees in everyday things and people she meets. Studies in watercolor, oil painting and design helped refine her skills.

Employed for twenty (20) years as a designer and colorist, Bonita was able to use her creativity in designing new patterns and colors for screen-printed fabric.

She now works from home doing detailed pencil drawings and paintings in oil, watercolor and pastel. Most recently Bonita has added photography as yet another means of expression.
