artEAST and Highlands Council are honored to pay tribute to the life and artwork of Dorothy Bonneau, a remarkable artist with an extensive body of work in many mediums.

Dorothy had a strong background in portraiture, which gave personality to her subjects, such as chickens and barnyard animals, that became signature work for her at the artEAST Gallery.  She won awards for her landscape work and her paintings were sought after throughout the Northwest.

Dorothy Bonneau passed away on the eve of May 22nd  2016 after a lingering illness. Through her final months her painting became even more important to her.  When her energy faded, the line and strokes in her work became even more animated and her color choices became brighter.

Dorothy painted with a joy and brightness that touched many people as she decorated the dark with color and light.

Please see the artEAST web site for an online catalog of more works for sale from her vast collection (over 70 pieces listed).
