Isabel is a 22 year old artist who finds joy in anything and everything creative. From art to writing to needlework, her passions fill her soul with all kinds of happy. She believes that there is beauty in everything, the most important thing is finding the strength inside of you to look for it. And understanding that it is okay to not fully understand, because secretly we are all just winging it. Her motto is: "It is a dangerous thing to un-believe something only because it frightens you."

Karen Bruno

Karen is a warm weather girl as evidenced by her living in Arizona, California and Hawaii. She earned her BFA degree in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Teaching illustration in Kona, Hawaii to students from around the globe for two decades also gave her opportunity to travel. She loves the diversity of people from different nations and has taught in Taiwan, Thailand, Kenya, Australia, and Armenia. This inspired her to paint many indigenous people portraits. Acrylic and oil are her favorite media. Sharing the journey of painting with others in the fun light-hearted atmosphere of PWAT gives Karen great joy. She absolutely loves being the tour guide as she takes people on an art adventure and spark joy through creativity.
