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!
Hey y’all! I was born in Orlando, Florida and raised in Atlanta, Georgia (Go Falcons!). Currently, I am studying Political Science at Louisiana State University. I plan to be an attorney to later become a Supreme Court Justice to ensure change. Although I spend most of my time studying and reading, art has been another passion that has continued to grow since I could hold a pencil. I love to work on art that accentuates Black Beauty, as it is a type of art that is often under appreciated. Painting with a Twist is an amazing experience. I love seeing our guest realize their artistic potential with their family and friends!
My name is Erika and I am a recent LSU graduate. I am oringally from Houston, Texas but came down to Louisiana for college! I currently am the manager for the Baton Rouge location! I love helping customers experience Painting with a Twist!
“Hi, y’all! My name is Isabella, Bella for short, and I am an Interior Design major at LSU. I’ve been a creative my whole life, and painting since I was eleven years old. I am passionate about subjects such as Art History as well as being trained in visual arts classes, or painting/drawing what I see right in front of me. I am originally from Mandeville, Louisiana but now reside in Baton Rouge with my cat Figaro. As a former bartender, I enjoy trying craft beers and cocktails on the weekends and hanging out with friends (when I’m not working on a project). I am excited to be a part of Painting with a Twist and hope I can inspire all who visit that creating art is as fun as it is such a rewarding accomplishment!
My background began at a very young age and encompasses multiple traditional and digital media. I love to create acrylic and pastel pet portraits. I’ve earned a Bachelor’s in Computer Science for 3D modeling and animation, and I plan on getting into 3D printing soon. Art has always been a passion of mine, and I enjoy bringing that passion to new and budding artists at Painting with a Twist.
Hi there! I'm Samantha Thibaut, aka Sam. I have had a passion for all forms of art since the first day my grandmother put a paintbrush in my hand at age 4. I am originally from Baton Rouge, LA, but loved the time I spent living in New Orleans where I attended the University of New Orleans and majored in Studio Art. I love to push the boundaries of technique in my creative expression. On a given weeknight, you can find me sipping a glass of wine and sitting amongst a range of pastels, oil paints, and acrylics, waiting for inspiration to strike. Aside from my personal interest, I also feel a great sense of meaning in helping others to discover their love for artistic expression. I've taught students across a variety of ages and backgrounds, and in both private classes and through non-profit work, and love that art brings people together in the common purpose of creative self-expression. I enjoy working at Painting with a Twist because I get to work with an amazing team of artists who are a source of constant inspiration. It also allows me to pursue my love of art and teaching, and I love sending our customers home with smiles on their faces and fabulous works of art of their own making. I hope when you come to the studio, it sparks your own creativity and inspiration!
Hey guys! My name is Zahria I’m originally from Florida I attend LSU, majoring in kinesiology with a concentration in Athletic Training. I’ve always been attracted to art in some way shape or form whether that be coloring books, fashion sketches, tattoo designs, etc. But I didn’t really get serious about it or see my potential until my high school years and since then I’ve been trying to flourish and learn my style and expose my art to the world with my business. I often create with oil paints, acrylic, and I dabble in digital art. Painting with a Twist is such a fun environment and I’m happy to be apart of that experience.
