Bonnie Saunders

The Artist/Artisan...
Bonnie Saunders is a self-taught artist whose desire to draw began at a very young age.  She was born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada where she gets most of her inspiration from nature and subjects that are "Canadian".  Bonnie uses coloured pencil as a medium to create true to life images which portray beauty and nature.  She  enjoys the creative process and tries not to be influenced by others.
Becoming a young entrepeneur in Saskatchewan has been very fulfilling for Bonnie.  In addition to her own designs, Bonnie has now added "badges and crests" to her reportoire using images provided to her from the Directorate of History and Heritage and the RCMP Foundation. As these heirloom type collectables make their way around the world, Bonnie is grateful to contribute a portion of each sale of the Canadian Forces Badge Plates to the Support Our Troops - Military Families Fund.  Bonnie supports the work of the  RCMP members across Canada through the RCMP Foundation with the sale of each RCMP Crest Plate as well.

Where she works....
is located in a century old church building which overlooks a breathtaking view of the North Saskatchewan River in the beautiful hamlet of Frenchman Butte, Saskatchewan.  It is this location that inspires Bonnie each and every day.

Recipients of Bonnie Saunders’ work include former Chief of the Defence Staff - General Hillier, His Royal Highness - The Earl of Wessex, the Premiers of Western Canada, Colonel-in-Chief of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI), The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson, LGen (Retired) Ray Crabbe, as well as Canadian hockey great - Paul Coffey among other proud recipients of Change Of Commands gifts, retirement gifts, anniversary gifts, birthday gifts, etc

"I was deeply honored to present one of my pieces to Prince Edward in August of 2003 as part of the Lloydminster Centennial celebration.  It was one of the most memorable moments of my life."


"On June 14th, 2008, I was invited to be a part of a very successful fundraiser for the Military Families Fund and had the distinct honor of  presenting the very first Canadian Forces Badge Plate to General Rick Hillier - it was an evening that I will never forget!"
