Katie Mendez, long-time collector of female portraits, rediscovered her paint brush after an extended hiatus spent doing other important work - particularly mothering two young children and fundraising for non-profit organizations.

San Bonita Studio was founded in 2023 and is based in St. Louis, Missouri.
