Bonnie Miljour has worked as an artist for the University of Michigan's Museum of Paleontology since 1989. She holds a Master of Fine Art degree in watercolor painting, and is largely self-taught as a scientific illustrator. A workshop in biological illustration first kindled an interest and led her to work for a graduate student in zoology, drawing the musculature of a large iguana lizard. Following that she illustrated a series of piglet dissections for a university course book.  Finally came an opportunity to work in Paleontology and she applied for the position, was hired and has been happy ever since.

Bonnie has been showing and selling her watercolor paintings and drawings for many years and has won numerous awards, including that of the Michigan Water Color Society. Her artwork was featured as a full color cover painting for The Journal of the Michigan Bar Association, and she recently has illustrated and published a children's book about brown bats.

Bonnie lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with her devoted husband and a sweet little Papillion puppy.
