Cassandra Barney – Cassandra Barney was born and raised in Orem, Utah. She received her Master's degree in Fine Arts from Brigham Young University in 2000. Barney portrays the souls of heroines, everyday women who have found strength and personal victory in their diverse experiences. Her portraiture carries a range of emotion reflective of the events that have shaped their character. Ambiguous and poignant, Cassandra's women find strength in their femininity. "They are beautiful and strong, because of the complexity of their feminine nature." Life is truly art at Barney's home. Her husband is also an artist and teacher. Their three daughters enjoy creating alongside their parents. In addition to her children, Barney encourages many others to explore the world of art through education. She has taught at The Waterford School and Brigham Young University.

Sarinda Jones – "A minimalist approach gives my glass work a contemporary feel and illuminates the simple beauty of glass. I try to capture that moment in my life through art. I enjoy the whole process of making art, from the beginning to the end as well exploring different techniques. Everything is spontaneous, trusting the process from the start. In my opinion this is the most exciting part of making an art. I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and the playfulness of creating. Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams." Sarinda Jones. Visit
