Our Artists

Claudia Cianci
Claudia Cianci
Claudia recently moved here from Boston, MA. She is a mother of four boys and has been knee deep in paint, glitter, and glue for decades! She is currently the owner and instructor for ART-C. She has never really considered herself a “serious artist”...though she has been teaching art classes for years -- everything from acrylic and watercolor, wine glass painting, children’s birthday parties, art therapy classes for elderly Alzheimer's and dementia patients, to private lessons. She has taught classes to “students” as young as 3 and as old as 93! She is passionate and enthusiastic about art and painting, and she enjoys unearthing the creative side in people, especially those who are inexperienced and believe they have no talent… She is so excited to be working here at Painting with a Twist! She absolutely loves what she does and she loves, Loves, LOVES making people smile! When she is not “art-ing” you can usually find her enjoying her other loves and passions--cooking and entertaining, gardening, and the beach!

Brooke Pikolas
Brooke Pikolas
Originally from PA, Brooke received her Bachelor's in Sociology from Athens State, AL in 2003. Her passion for art began more than 20 years ago when she dabbled in ceramics, then evolved into making and selling jewelry. Finally, she discovered painting and started working with canvas, and also recycling old furniture. She loves experimenting in her work, and recently started painting seashells and pallets. She loves to paint nature and landscapes in Acrylic, so naturally she was drawn to Bob Ross who is her strongest influence. You can see her work on Instagram and on Facebook. When she is not escaping into her art, she is busy raising her amazing 5 year old son. They have lived here in Lewes for the past 5 years; and stay busy doing yoga, anything outdoors, sports, and of course enjoying the beach! One of her favorite quotes is "Every Child is an Artist until he's told he's not an Artist" John Lennon. Come discover your inner artist with Brooke at Painting with a Twist!
