Bonnie Lemaire

www.bonniella.com

Bonnie Lemaire began her career as a freelance illustrator with a promotional post card in 1989. She is a  graduate of Ontario College of Art’s Communication and Design program, specializing in medical illustration.

Her first position as artist/designer was with Ganz and Brothers Canada, designing figurines and teddy bears! It was a valuable experience, catapulting her into a successful freelance career.  She has seen her work utilized in many different projects, including home décor, giftware, stickers, toy design and children’s books and finally..FABRIC! Her eternal optimism is the foundation of every drawing. Silliness and quirky behavior of those around her are a constant inspiration. Comical and curious characters and creatures come alive and dance on her pages.

Bonnie works in her home studio located in a small Hamlet in Northern Ontario, Canada. Surrounded by her loving family and furry friend Crowquill the studio cat, not to mention 6 lively hens cackling away in a converted backyard tree-house chicken coop.

Books she has illustrated have won many awards including; Foreword Clarion 5-Star-Seal, NIEAseal-2014-Winner, and New Pinnacle Award. Bonnie’s eccentric creations within fantastical stories have brought smiles to small faces and delight to her readers all over the world. She continues to enjoy her work, drawing and painting while listening to crime and mystery audio books, Studio Gibli soundtracks and endless reruns of the original Star Trek.
