Our Atlanta, GA - Sandy Springs Painting with a Twist Artists
Though I was raised in Georgia, I’ve always felt like my home is wherever I can learn, connect with people, and gain new insights in this complex world we live in. The value of nature and human expression has been a massive part of me for basically my whole life. With a Drawing/Painting BFA and a minor in Marketing from Kennesaw State University, I went to work as an administrator for a gallery in Atlanta soon after graduating. This experience made me rethink my own career as an artist, and what truly fulfilled me. Now, I distribute my time amongst (too many) incredible experiences including painting for myself, riding my little 250 motorcycle through the mountains, helping my agency discover and sign new talent in the southeast, studying Japanese, noodling on the guitar and piano, staying up until 3 am analyzing current issues, and of course uncovering the mysteries of the modern brush through simplified and relaxed lessons! Bring a bottle, a friend, and your favorite beret, because we are about to grow some mustaches and become the most hilariously talented arteestz Sandy Springs has ever seen!
Born and raised in Cincinnati, OH, Bailey fell in love with creating art. She is a self taught artist who has grown up exploring the world through paint, pencils, markers and so much more. Bailey is a recent graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Digital Media Communication Studies and a double minor in Arabic and Film Studies but please don't ask her to speak Arabic to you as that skill is slowly fading away. Once she graduated she decided to move to the big city of Atlanta and has loved every minute so far. She cannot wait to help you create the best artwork for any wall!
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!
