Randal Roberts is an internationally recognized self-taught painter. Having identified as an artist his whole life, at the age of 30 he was inspired at last to quit the factory job, embark on a soul-searching road trip, and dedicate himself to art full time. 
He has lived in the beautiful NY Hudson Valley, the beloved San Francisco Bay, and is currently based in Denver, Colorado.


"I pledge to do my best work for the highest good, & to practice my art as a way of awakening myself and others."


Shannon Miguela is an American artist with a BFA in art education specialized in painting and drawing. Shannon's journey as an artist celebrates the unique symbiosis of human to both worldly and otherworldly elements. She paints with the intention to empower viewers and inspire inner dialogues about the divine feminine and the surreal subconscious. She feels that through the continuous practice of enhancing and understanding human experience through visionary art, existence becomes more meaningful and lucid.

As a studio artist, live painter, and art teacher, she lives and breathes every second of her day through this creative practice. To her, painting is our soul language and  every brush stroke is an opportunity for growth.
