The life of Billie Bourgeois is a grand adventure. With 7 years as a nun, 46 years of marriage, 3 daughters, 6 grandchildren, and years of widowhood under her belt, she feels like she’s just getting started. The stories she collects, good and sad, scary and sound, all weave together to define her life and artwork. Bourgeois is passionate about teaching and learning, not just in a traditional school setting but throughout the textures of everyday living. She’s not quite sure what she loves about art, but she knows that painting transforms her into her best self. The lines of her life are family, friends, painting, and teaching; she hopes her pieces will tell you the rest. From her floral lullabies to galaxy-bound gardens, there is much to learn about Billie Bourgeois.
