Bonnie Lemaire began her career as a freelance illustrator with her first promotional postcard in 1989. She graduated from Ontario College of Art’s communication and design program in 1992 and took a position as artist/designer with Ganz and Brothers Canada. It was a valuable experience, catapulting her into a successful freelance career where she applied all her experience, hard work and versatility into a variety of new directions. Bonnie has seen her work utilized in many different projects, including home décor, giftware, sticker and toy design and children’s books.
Bonnie's eternal optimism is the foundation of every drawing. Flowing from her pencils and tips of her brushes into her creative and eye catching pieces, comical and curious creatures dance on the page. Children's book illustration is her passion. Integrating eccentric creations within fantastical stories brings smiles to small faces, and delight to her readers all over the world.
