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.
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
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!
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.
Emily discovered the joy of painting at a young age and pursued a Studio Art degree at Tulane University. In New Orleans, she joined the Painting with a Twist family and worked for the corporate studios, finding even more joy in teaching. After honing her skills and studying art history in Florence, Italy, she ventured even farther to teach AP Studio Art in China! Emily is thankful art has taken her around the world, and back home to New Mexico. She believes making art should be an accessible form of expression for anyone, anytime, anywhere!
Maddie is an Albuquerque transplant from the Chicagoland area, but has absolutely loved her time living in the high desert so far! She was a double major in Studio Art and Small Business/Entrepreneurship in college, so hopefully she knows what she's talking about up on stage... She first started working at Painting with a Twist her senior year of college in Illinois and is excited to be back on the stage here in New Mexico! When she's not running around with work she enjoys gardening, reading, or most of all playing with cats. Any cat will do really, she's not picky. Maddie is a firm believer in that it's the little things in life that make it special, and showing people how to loosen up, have some fun painting while getting out of their comfort zone are awesome ways to achieve that! Plus adding a little wine into the mix never hurt anyone ;) Cant wait to get out there and paint with you! Cheers!
Cassandra is an up and coming artist who can't wait to spend time teaching others to paint while having a blast doing it. She loves to draw and is ready to share her twist with everyone. Cassandra is a preschool teacher who loves to do anything art related. She looks forward to seeing you at the studio!!
