About Our Paint-N-Sip Studio


BareRoots Creation Studio was started with the dream that we could get people out from behind their electronics and interacting face to face in a fun and friendly environment. We wanted to introduce the joy of painting with something extra!  We took the paint-n-sip concept and expanded on it to include other crafts.  We want to create memories in addition to the craft or painting you take home with you.  BareRoots Creation Studio is located in Surprise AZ about 40 minutes outside Phoenix

Elizabeth Bennett

No not the one form Pride and Prejudice! Elizabeth Bennett is the owner of BareRoots Creation studio. She has a love for crafting but has since been required to move her craft room out of the house, thus the birth of the studio. She is a wife, a mother, a student and still a full time employee....she is a busy lady! Nonetheless she is always ready for a craft and fun time at BareRoots Creation Studio!

John Givens

John served his country in the Navy and is now serving the valley assisting those with substance use disorders. He is working towards a Master's Degree in Addiction Counseling.
