WELCOME!  I'm  Bonnie Lemaire.  I  began my career as a freelance illustrator with a promotional post card in 1989. I am a  graduate of Ontario College of Art’s communication and design program.  My first position as artist/designer was with Ganz and Brothers Canada.  It was a valuable experience, catapulting me into a successful freelance career.  I've  seen my work utilized in many different projects, including home décor, giftware, sticker and toy design and children’s books.

 
MY WORK

My  eternal optimism is the foundation of every drawing.

 Children's book illustration has always been my passion. I love to see my comical and curious characters and creatures dance on the page. 
Integrating eccentric creations within fantastical stories has brought smiles to small faces, and delight to my readers all over the world.

 

PHILOSOPHY

Drawing is the honesty of the art.

There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.

 

Salvador Dali
