Our Team

The Frosted Flamingo
Owner and Founder

Becca Spiro

Becca Spiro is the owner and founder of The Frosted Flamingo. Becca grew up in a creative household, and she believes that art should be a shared experience, just like a delicious meal or an exciting vacation. Becca founded The Frosted Flamingo to bring joy and empowerment to people through creativity and artistic creation. The Frosted Flamingo provides children and adults with a rare hands-on experience—an opportunity to tap into your inner artist and make something that is uniquely yours.

Becca moved to Summit County to work for Breckenridge Ski Patrol, and she loves the outdoors just as much as she loves art. Becca holds a BA in Visual Art and Art History from Bowdoin College and an MA in Contemporary Art from Sotheby’s Institute of Art.


Annie Flaherty

Originally from Illinois, Annie Flaherty moved to Breckenridge in 2015. Annie is an avid crafter and creator, working mostly with yarn, oil paint, and charcoal, and she holds a BFA in Dance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since moving to Summit County, Annie has worked as a bartender and dance/yoga instructor. She is incredibly excited to join The Frosted Flamingo this summer and is thrilled to infuse more art into the Summit County community. Aside from arts and crafts, Annie loves mac and cheese, dogs, and exploring the mountains! 

Creative Assistant

Susie Nothnagel

 Susie Nothnagel has lived in Breckenridge for the past 23 years.  While her job as a Breckenridge ski patroller has been her mainstay, like many resourceful mountain people, she has dabbled in a myriad of jobs to pay the bills and keep life interesting.  Both at work and at play, her favorite place to be is outside in nature. Her motto is “Live life as an experiment” and she is happiest when she is traveling, petting dogs, hugging loved ones, and trying not to take anything too seriously.

Creative Assistant

Erika Donaghy

Erika moved to the mountains in 2019, and she loves life in Summit County! After working in nonprofit fundraising for several years, she is now focused on her career as a watercolor artist. Erika is passionate about sharing the joy of being creative with adults and kids alike. When she’s not making art, she’s probably lost in the woods somewhere.
