Cheyenne is a recent graduate with Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Photography. Her photography is a reflection of who she is and she is continually expanding on her work.

Nicole Schroeder is a quintessential creative and founder of Atthirtyone, LLC where she explores experiences through art and design. Originally a painter, Nicole transmits fleeting moments from nature onto canvas. While living in Turkey she took up photography and uses her artistic eye to uniquely interpret the world through her lens. Most recently, Nicole began designing accessories from her paintings and photographs, including scarves, headbands and bags. She sells these, along with select paintings, on her Etsy shop Atthirtyone. Admittedly, most of Nicole's design ideas are born with a cocktail in hand, sometimes made with homemade bitters or infusions. She just moved from Washington, DC to Los Angeles and looks forward exploring the city's craft cocktail and art scene along with new friends in LA'schapter.
