Illinois Galleries


Bonnie Dawson


I live with my husband Dave and two miniature schnauzers DaisyMae and CocoPuff in beautiful town northern Illinois Lake Forest. I have a big 200 English roses garden. I love to drive fast in my convertible across the country with my camera.I drove to Yellowstone and to St Antonio.

My husband has a studio at home, his relaxation is playing guitar. My relax is to go away from my work with my camera. I can't retire, people still need my work. We own a dental lab fabricating sophisticated dentures.

I belong to Lake County Camera Club and lately I signed to Garden Photographic Society. I'm member of Chicago Botanic Garden and love to go there often. I find challenging to photograph birds as they are fast, colorful and make me get up early to go out with my camera.
