I heard about Painting With A Twist while watching Fox News while I was recovering from surgery. My hubby and co-owner, Jaye and I, both have a law enforcement and military background. In fact, we both met while we were both deployed to Iraq in 2005. Jaye retired from the U. S. Army in 2008 after 25 years of dedicated service and now does contract work for the military. I wanted us to be able to switch gears and be part of bringing FUN & creativity into people's lives, so PWAT is perfect for us! I am currently working on my PhD in Forensic Psychology, so I NEED Fun, too! We are so grateful to be part of the PWAT family, & the Loudoun County community! Fun Fact: We love the simple things in life: being outside, enjoying time with friends, family, & our furbabies, (Toby & Halle), running, working out, etc. Oh, and we have 2 awesome kids in college full-time, Kristianna & Camran, so we're broke!!!

We are so grateful to be part of the PWAT family, & the Loudoun County community!

Yelyzaveta

Yelyzaveta

Hello! I'm Yelyzaveta, or as many call me: Lisa. I'm a trilingual artist and history aficionado born in Ukraine who grew up in America. I have taught art for two years at various studios before settling at Painting with a Twist, which is unbeatable in terms of the positive atmosphere and accessibility towards art! I have experience working in book cover illustration, graphic design, and freelance art. My favorite medium is watercolor, but I adore the versatility and vivid nature of acrylics. I love to paint people above all--there's nothing quite as captivating as the mystery of the visage and the portrayal of it on paper. http://yelyzavetashevchenko.crevado.com Thank you for welcoming me as part of the team!
