       Bonnie spent 30 years living and working on her family's horse farm in Canaan, NY. The barn closed in 2002 and the youngest of her three sons began kindergarten the following year. With more time on her hands, she began something she hadn't done for more than 20 years - she began to paint again. She also began attending craft shows and fell in love with folk art. Life on the farm, the mountains, valleys, historic homes and villages that surround it gave her unlimited ideas.  
She currently works as her own agent, licensing her images to numerous companies to be used on jigsaw puzzles, calendars, diamond art, advent calendars, greeting cards, cross stitch and prints that are sold through out the United States and Canada.
