Bon Nielsen is a European poet and painter. Bon grew up in Scandinavia and attended school in the Basque Country, she moved to Los Angeles after spending 15 years in England and is currently living in the High Desert side of the Mojave.

"I have always been inspired by ‘Space’ - A room, a street, a building, a sky. The location and the purpose of it as well as its relationship with Light are a huge inspiration to all of my work. It goes beyond ‘decorative art’. It’s a stepping stone to set a mood, a place in the mindset where to live away from the ‘Everyday’ that happens outside."

With a MA in Communications & Marketing by the London College of Communications, a background on Street Art, Fashion Illustrative work, a passion for Mid Century Modern Architecture and Design, Bon landing in Palm Springs was inevitable. After moving to the high desert, Bon started her own music video production company, Mohave Blue Films and is also currently the Art Director and Brand Manager for THE RAVEN, a quarterly Joshua Tree print publication.
