More About Rhonda



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.
