Our Atlanta, GA - Sandy Springs Painting with a Twist Artists
Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico to a family of architects and educators, I have been immersed in the worlds of art and education from a very young age. I owe most of my passion for art to my grandfather, a graphic artist and photographer who would sit me on his lap and teach me drawing fundamentals, as well as make sure my stash of art supplies never ran low come the holidays.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Art and Technology at the University of Puerto Rico in 2013 and a Master of Fine Arts in Animation at the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2016, and currently illustrate and animate for fun and freelance. I'm also fluent in Spanish and English and grasp the basics of French. I consider myself a jack of all trades, and have taken courses in ceramics, sculpture and calligraphy and habitually watch woodworking and glassblowing videos when I'm not cooking, reading or playing video games. I look forward to seeing you in one of my classes and showing you the passion I have for art. Let's paint and pARTy together!
Born and raised in Georgia, I have been entrenched in the arts my entire life. From a very young age my mother, a visual artist herself, noticed that I had a talent for artistic expression. Though I’ve never been formally taught, my mother provided ample opportunities for me to let my artistic juices flow free; whether through introducing me to new mediums or showing me the works of other artists, I was always being exposed to the world of art. It doesn’t stop there either, with me playing the trumpet, cello, and whatever else I can make a note from, I found artistry in everything I did. I am currently studying Architecture and Civil Engineering, and honing my abilities to teach FUN art! I look forward to meeting any and everyone looking to go from being glum to having fun; let's paint till we faint! I look forward to painting with everyone here in studio.

Born and raised in Spain, I have a unique international background as I lived and studied in several countries across Europe. With a strong background in fine art and former experience as a gallery owner, I am well versed in many aspects of the art world. I am fluent in Spanish and Italian I have lived in Atlanta for the past 20 years. My extensive cross-cultural background allows me to work with customers of all nationalities. I look forward to meeting our customers and perhaps I can teach you a few words in Spanish or Italian!
