My name is Sarah Bonnell and I have a great passion for art. I am from Phoenix, Arizona and a recent graduate from Arizona State University. I have a BFA in Art Education and I am currently working towards my own art classroom in Colorado. I absolutely love to paint nature with oils and watercolors, I also have a deep love for anything with yarn. You will always see me crocheting in my spare time.
Megan Larmie-Knipple recently moved to lovely Colorado Springs, CO. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a minor in art history. While painting is her specialty, she also loves drawing, printmaking, sculpture and photography.
