Bond was born and raised in the B.C. Interior. She graduated from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2001; and since then, her contemporary figurative drawings and books have been exhibited across Canada.
Bond's drawing process involves creating imaginary characters and narratives, which are often based on real events and experiences: “The myriad of characters I create in my drawings live within a fantasy world. Examining girlhood and sisterhood, rituals and celebrations, and our relationship with nature and each other are some of the ideas I think about while drawing.” Bond has received a Canada Council Grant, a Saskatchewan Arts Board Grant, and a B.C. Arts Council Professional Assistance Grant. She currently resides in Victoria, B.C.
