Rachael Brown has always loved the outdoors. She grew up surrounded by creeks and towering redwood trees… Spending her spare time hiking and exploring the world. Now she’s surrounded by Granite peaks, Alpine Lakes, and a bounty of either snow, or wildflowers. She tries to enjoy and capture the little things that make her smile and reflect, or the big things that take her breath away.


Linnea Sword was born and raised in the beautiful mountain area of Dorrington. Art was an early passion and inspiration is taken from the natural beauty that graces our community. She lives in Arnold with her husband, two children, and two Australian Shepherds.
