This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is based on materials provided by Sue Willoughby of Prescott, Arizona:

Born in Chicago, Bonnie Casey became a landscape painter in Arizona where she lives in Chino Valley. She has won more than 30 juried awards, and her oils, pastels and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries in Texas, Florida, Michigan, and Arizona.

In Chicago, she studied at the Chicago Art Institute on a scholarship, the American Academy of Art, and with Joe Abbrescia for fifteen years at the Village Art School. She credits Abbrescia with her forte of color, the using of opposite colors to evoke emotions, and a loose technique incorporating soft edges and broad brush strokes. For many years, she painted back drops for theaters, and she also gave art lessons for over 30 years.

She demonstrates her techniques at various workshops throughout the United States, delivers local lectures and stars in "The Art of Sharing and The Sharing of Art," an instructional television show on the Prescott, Arizona Community Access channel.

Her primary medium is oil, and her goal is to paint that which makes her feel good. She says that "Whenever I sense that I am being too 'careful', I know that I have missed my mark. Immediately I revert to my three basics: Content, Intent, and Execution. . . . Once I start working, it is pure response. Just me and my feelings." Often she paints with classical music in the background, saying that it "really helps send me through the painting."

One of her series is called "Cowboys at Work," which depicts ranch hands waiting for their next work assignment on a ranch about 50 miles from Chino Valley. In 1995, she lived in the Mabel Dodge Luhan house in Taos, New Mexico, while she taught an oil painting workshop.

In 1992, Casey won the Grumbacher Award and in 2000, she won the Grumbacher Gold Medallion at the Southwest Artists Guild
