As a child,
Bonnie's prized possessions included many of the necessary tools of a
serious artist. Pencil crayons, drawing books, assorted pencils and
colourful pads of paper were always close at hand. Some of her favorite
things to draw were cartoons of ocean life, images of a dog she called
"Rex" as well as printing poems and text in microscopic
high school and college, Bonnie chose to specialize in drawing, graphic
arts and photography. She received numerous awards and a scholarship for
Bonnie's drawing skills were re-ignited when a friend of hers started up
two community newspapers. He was looking for a new feature and encouraged
Bonnie to pick up her pen and draw. This was when ComParrot
"Spot the Differences" Puzzles first took on life and began
challenging newspaper readers.
Bonnie finds herself drawing as much as possible. Sometimes late at night
she's tossing around a new idea or putting the final touches on the next
puzzle. Bonnie is truly in her element with pen in hand bringing life to a
blank piece of paper. She gets a thrill out of figuring out which
differences to make in the puzzles and an even bigger thrill watching a
reader look for them.
