Our Artists

Susan Gomez

Susan Gomez

Susan loves art in all forms! She especially loves sharing her knowledge and love of art with others. When she's not at the Painting with a Twist studio, she is in her home studio making all kinds of art, or she is busy with her award-winning face and body painting business.
Kasie Cochrane

Kasie Cochrane

Kasie loves art, especially portrait art and the human figure. She believes that anyone can create something beautiful. As a single mom, she is great with kids of all ages (grownup kids, too) and wants to encourage everyone to open their minds, and have a great time creating something truly special.
Lea Christopher

Lea Christopher

My name is Lea Christopher. I am a mother, grandmother, artist and 5 th grade teacher. I have been an artist ever since I understood that crayons and markers and paint made marks on paper…and walls, and books, and siblings. Then came my own children who were prolific graffiti artists. (I just wish we hadn’t been renting at the time.) But now, there is a grandbaby who loves to draw. Ah, sweet revenge! All kidding aside, I heartily encourage scribbling on walls because art is fun! I firmly believe that anyone can paint and enjoy the act of creating. I am so happy to be a part of Painting With a Twist and I hope to see you soon!
Winter Earnest

Winter Earnest

Hi, my name is Winter and I have had a passion for art since I was a little girl! I am a full time student at UNM for a degree in Fine Arts and love to do anything extra nerdy. I love video games, movies, D&D, drawing, painting, and so much more! I love what I do and I have been teaching painting classes for over a year when I started with my mother to do frequent art and wine events. Being an artist has been an amazing ride and I am so thankful and excited to be working with Painting with a Twist to allow other people to find their inner artist.
Jenny LaMagna-Reiter

Jenny LaMagna-Reiter

Jenny is a chemist by day and artist by night. She enjoys experimenting with different colors, materials, and techniques to create something truly unique. When not in the lab or studio, you can find her on the ice - an avid curler and member of the Roadrunner Curling Club. Jenny can't wait to share her love of art with you through this unforgettable painting experience. She hopes you'll not only have fun, but feel inspired and empowered as you take home your very own masterpiece.

Shannon Kmatz

Welcome! I am Shannon. I have been passionate about art in all forms for as long as I can remember. I am a mother, grandmother, and wife. I am retired from public service and I work from home as consultant and researcher in psychology. Painting is therapeutic for me and helps me wash away the stresses of daily life. I am so excited to be part of the Painting with a Twist family!
Lori Jameson

Lori Jameson

My passion for art started with chalk at 5 years old, then this Michigan girl graduated to finger painting in kindergarten. This once upon a story has now added Painting With A Twist to my resume. The person of Who Am I is long, ranging from mom, care-giver to my forgetful mom, dog lover, henna artist, home fixer upper, snow skier, world traveler and on. What have I done professionally? Sculpted teeth in dental offices, and took pictures of internal organs and babies in belly's. This story ends with you, as we get lost in the world of painting.
