Q&A with Blake Egan, Owner

Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
Colorado Archery Co has worked with non-profit groups to help children from broken homes connect with the outdoors. During several weekend camps, we helped over three hundred youth find a mentor and learn archery. It was a true success.

What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?
Please be sure to wear tennis shoes and minimize any large jewelry, as it can get caught in a bowstring. We recommended that you bring sunscreen, as well.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I became passionate about archery at an early age, and I learned to bow hunt while spending time outdoors. By the age of 15, I took up competitive archery. I also started training for the U.S. Archery Team and for the Olympics in 2008 and 2012. After successfully winning a spot on the U.S. Archery Team, as well as All-American Status, I competed in the Olympic trials. I have traveled overseas to Korea, England, and South America for archery.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Marketing from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

In Donna Francis' case, it's hard to tell whether life imitates art or if it's the other way around. She draws inspiration from the beauty in nature that surrounds her, painting realistic details that range from the delicate petals of a blossoming flower to the soulful eyes of a loyal basset hound. For more than three decades she's honed her craft, and she passes on her tried-and-true techniques to students during classes on oil, acrylic, and watercolor painting, as well as pastels and drawing.
