Bryan

Bryan

Hey, I'm Bryan, AKA Batman, the Art Director for this studio. I have been interested in creating art since a very young age. Though I have never received any formal art training, my parents have always encouraged my love for drawing, painting, and sculpture. Being a self taught artist, I believe that I am good proof that practice with diligence leads to noticeable improvement. I love my job at Painting with a Twist because I get to share my knowledge of art in a fun filled setting. My favorite type of paintings are portraits of people and animals. When I’m not painting, you can find me at the movies or reading comic books. I hope you will enjoy your time at Painting with a Twist and possibly pursue the arts in the future, because it can be very rewarding!

Branna

Branna

Hi! My name is Branna and I am a self-taught artist from Baton Rouge. My creative journey started when I was little and drawing on any surface I could get my hands on (including walls and car doors in the very beginning). With the support of my family and art teachers, I switched to sketch books and eventually canvas - haven’t looked back since. Although I have been involved with art for most of my life, I didn’t start learning to paint until I hit my thirties. This recent journey has solidified my strongly held belief that it’s never too late to find something you love to do. I am so excited and honored to continue learning, to share this painting experience with you, and to be part of this amazing team!

Edie Sanders

Edie Sanders

Hey! I’m Edie, aka Edith. I’m a self taught artist, born and raised in Louisiana. I love music and hanging out with my friends but more than anything I’m passionate about art. I became very dedicated and serious with art in high school and ever since then I can’t stop myself from being a doodlebug 24/7. My favorite type of art to do is watercolor and also portraits of people. My major is Education with a minor in Art at BRCC. I am also known to be very outgoing and could talk for hours about anything. So being apart of the Painting with a Twist crew is a dream job for me and I am in love with meeting others and teaching them the fun ways of art.

Diana Nguyen

Diana Nguyen

Hello! My name is Diana and I’m from Baton Rouge, LA. I began my art journey at one years old and I started with drawing beautiful murals on my grandparents’ living room walls. My family saw through the destruction of their walls and saw something in me, so they bought me sketch books and art supplies to foster the budding artist in me. In elementary school, I attended whatever free art programs that were available in the community, then joined the Talented Art program at Westdale Middle School and continued my art studies at the Talented Art program at McKinley Senior High School. My art is heavily inspired by anime, video games, nature, and human spirituality. I believe that art is therapy and through art you are able to lose yourself and find yourself at the same time.

Sharon

Sharon

Hi there, my name is Sharon Langlois. I was born in Dallas, Texas and graduated high school in San Antonio, Texas. However, I grew up on Army bases around the U.S. and the world. As a child, I loved to read and would copy illustrations from my favorite books. This is what led me to my love of clothes and the history of clothing design. And so, I graduated with a B.F.A. in Theater production with an emphasis in costume design from the University of Texas at Austin. After getting married to my wonderful husband, we moved back to his home town, Baton Rouge. Geaux Tigers! We adopted our son who was born in South Korea. So, as his mom, of course I have become a fan of Korean culture, art, and music. After several years of retail and retail management, I went back to Southeastern to become a certified teacher. Through my determination to show that art has value, I became a National Board Certified teacher in Early – Middle Childhood Art. I taught art for several years until I became a 2 nd grade homeroom teacher. All of my teaching experience has been a joy. I feel that you are never too old to learn and that art should be enjoyed as well as thought provoking. Through creating art, your personality will shine through. Here at Painting With a Twist not only will you have a great time, you will have your own unique work of art that reflects how amazing you are.

Allison

Allison

Hi! My name is Allison and I am a self taught artist from southeast Louisiana who has been creating all my life. While my artistic side may have taken the back seat during my college years, I am excited to be able to pick up the brush again and show you all how fun it can be to let your creativity shine! You can look forward to upbeat music, a no-pressure atmosphere, and hands on guidance in my classes. My aim is to inspire others through art and create a welcoming space where everyone feels encouraged to explore their own artistic journey, as well as let loose and not take things too seriously. I am grateful for the opportunity to pursue my passions and excited to work with you to create both beautiful artwork and lasting memories! Can’t wait to see you in class!”

Amanda

Amanda

Hey, I’m Amanda! I’m a self-taught artist from Baton Rouge and I’m currently studying architecture at LSU. My favorite mediums are watercolor and digital art. I have a passion for taking care of houseplants, and you can find me popped up at makers’ markets on the weekends all around Baton Rouge selling plant-themed artwork. When I’m not in the studio, I’m probably doing yoga, playing music, or watching movies. I can’t wait to meet you at Painting With a Twist!

Amori

Amori

Hi! I am Amori! I’ve had a fascination with nature my entire life and have been painting about it for as long as I can remember. My passions for both have always been a tug of war, but I was blessed to have spent over 10 years in the talented art program and receive mentorship from many local artists in the New Orleans area. Therefore, I believe I fell into my creative niche early on- pulling inspiration from surrealism artists and my outdoor adventures. When I moved to Baton Rouge to pursue my education, I consequently fell into the local maker space creating artwork inspired by Louisiana’s ecosystems with sustainably sourced materials. I currently have a degree in natural sciences and am pursuing another in conservation biology. So, the subjects of my art come from a place of wanting to inspire curiosity, concern, and empathy for Louisiana’s native ecology. Just like my story and background, my classes have the same earthy mood! Expect plenty of chill jazzy and R&B tunes to help you get in the zone. I love seeing guests get lost in their paintings!

Ebone

Ebone

Hi, my name is Ebone Moses, and I love to create art! I am a wife, a mother, and a US Army veteran. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending quality time with my family & friends. Though I am a Baton Rouge resident, I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. Throughout my adolescence and teenage years, I was granted the privilege to study at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA). I later was blessed to sharpen my artistic skills, study the various aspects of art, and receive my B.S. in Visual Arts from The Southern University A&M College. I also have five years of experience in teaching art to both middle and high school students. Out of the many facets of creating art (ranging from graphite drawings down to sculpture), acrylic painting is at the top of the list as being my favorite. Why? Well, it's simply the most forgiving way to create art! You can "make a mistake," let the paint dry (literally within minutes), and just like magic, paint over it as if the mistake never happened! Pretty dope, right? I mean, if you were to ask me, I believe the end result for every painting should be a flawless finish! So what are you waiting for? Check me out! Let's unwind, enjoy a session or two, and create some beautiful art where mistakes aren't a real thing. I look forward to painting with you!

I grew my passion for art in high school, and i haven’t turned back since. I love music, having fun with my family, and I do make-up art on the side.
