Tahirih is an Idaho-raised artist, Owner and Creative Director of Art Party Boise, wife and mother of two who believes that art is for everyone. Creating work from her home-based Eleven Shades Studio, she manifests ideas captured from the æther that is human imagination and is inspired by insatiable wanderlust, grounded only through her love of earth and nature. She has a formal background in fine arts, design, psychology, and developmental therapy. When she is not busy performing her balancing act of entrepreneur/creator/nurturer, you will most likely find her near water or in her garden.

Jessica has over 15 years of teaching art in the private and public school systems. Now that her daughter is off to college, she has decided to pursue art full time and has launched an art business with her architect husband. You can see their professional work at CJ’s House of Art. Art Party Boise will allow her to continue her love of teaching, but on a schedule that gives her time to create. Jessica draws, paints with all mediums, does graphic design and photography. There is no job too difficult. Her work is in offices throughout the valley. She focuses on bringing attention to beauty in the midst of the chaos that floods our lives every day. Through her art, she hopes to influence people to be who they were created to be…beautiful brothers and sisters of humanity. When she is not busy painting or teaching, Jessica loves to escape into the mountains, especially the San Juan Mountain range in Colorado. She hopes to scale many 14,000 foot peaks before her legs and lungs get too old to reach the summits.

Alejandra is on a unique mission to offer the world, always discovering and rediscovering to new depths. Her gift is to be offered through my natural artistic talents, and my understanding of human connection, emotional and spiritual expression, and all things intuitive and etheric. She brings art, connection, and expansion to communities around the world. Her personal artistic style is inspired and influenced by visionary artists around the world (and may or may not be obsessed with Alex Grey). She believe in sustainable human systems, quantum manifestation, and the infinite nature of the soul; and also has a deep love for long words…
As a part of her lifelong study of all things artistic, she accumulated specialized skill in working with acrylics, oils, and live performance painting, with a particular love of portraiture, charcoal, pencil, ink, vector illustrations, graphic art, and sculpture. As a visionary artist, she offers a unique type of oracle reading that is later transformed into a personal soul portrait or symbolic art piece. Receiving her associates degree in Graphic Design in 2015 has allowed her to help people realize their dreams by offering marketing, branding, and graphic design services.
