Our Austin, TX - Southpark Meadows Painting with a Twist Artists
Erin is a multifaceted visual artist, devoted to making the world a more colorful place! Originally from Central Florida, she relocated to immerse herself in Austin’s undeniably radiant art community. When she’s not instructing art classes or chasing after her daughter, Erin enjoys fiber arts, paper making, and print making. If you see her in class, be sure to ask her how much a rainbow weighs!
New to the Austin area, Katie is an enthusiastic creator hoping to share her philosophy that anyone with a passion to make something, can be an artist! Originally hailing from central Florida, she grew up immersed in and enamoured by every form of art from a young age. As it happens, she and every one of her 5 siblings later went on to each study and practice different art of their own (perhaps you've met Katie's sister, Erin, in the studio!) Her experience has taken her from music to dance to acting, but after moving to North Carolina to study Theatre Arts, Katie fell in love with set design; planning, building and painting the backgrounds for the plays and musicals for her local theatre. Now, Katie is over the moon to join the Painting With A Twist family, and get back to the roots of what she loves most in the world: MAKING ART!!!
