I am a wife and a mom to two amazing teenagers. If you can't find me in the studio - I am at a WSW activity - cheering on the band with my son, watching my daughter perform in a play or musical, or on the softball diamonds at Sunshine. I have been drawing or painting as long as I can remember... my grandma would bring me to the kitchen table and ask me how many kinds of hats or flowers I could draw. I found a real love for art at a young age and continued on with art majors in high school and college. I enjoy giving back in my community and often foster homeless dogs. I love to travel and embrace myself in the beauty of the world. I am a Disney Fanatic. I am beyond excited to bring my love of the beautiful to the gals (and guys) who love wine and fun nights out!

My PWAT family calls me Eliza! I am passionate about art, design and all creative pursuits. I paint, draw, illustrate, and love music. I was born in a very small town, which inspired my love of nature. In my free time I hike, ski, swim, camp and anything that puts me in the middle of the woods. I moved to Buffalo 5 years ago to pursue a B.F.A. in Communication Design and I graduated from Buffalo State College in May, 2015. Upon obtaining my degree, I’ve been able to work with numerous clients as a freelancer to design logos, business cards, websites and more. I am excited to join the Painting with a Twist family for many reasons including working in a hands on environment as opposed to a digital one. Most importantly I am excited to share my love of painting and introduce people to new a creative outlet they can use to express themselves and create beautiful works of art!

Hi! My name is Janee! I was born and raised in Buffalo and, from a young age I knew I wanted to be an artist! I am so thrilled to have been able to carry that dream into a reality.I graduated from SUNY Fredonia with a degree is visual arts and new media, with a concentration in painting and drawing. With this degree I had the opportunity to studio how making art affects the brain and assists in the healing process for when people when use art as an outlet. My pursuit to to help people take a break from life and enjoy some time in the art world. (A glass of wine cant hurt,either!) I love laughing, traveling, music and wine. I hope after taking a class with me, you leave with a smile on your face and a painting you love!

Art is my passion. I’ve loved to draw and paint ever since I can remember. I wanted art to last all day, not just a class period. When I started high school, I made that happen. I started painting and I just couldn’t stop. Every spare moment was spent in the art studio with teachers that pushed me to be who I am today. I am an artist who is fascinated by the human figure, nature, and oil paints. I currently attend Buffalo State College for Art Education, with a minor in Art Therapy. I had such an amazing art experience throughout school and I want nothing more than to give that same experience to others. I have a desire to share my knowledge and passion with all generations. I want to touch lives and be the person that pushes others pursue their own crazy dreams. Creativity is so important and should be carried throughout a lifetime, not just that class period.

I grew up copying cartoons I watched on TV with Crayolas and ballpoint pens. I always wanted to re-create the characters that caught my interest because of their personalities or the way animators drew them. Although I don’t gravitate much towards animation anymore, I still credit cartoons for helping me to find a way to create ideas through art. Recently I’ve been motivated to intertwine science and spirituality. To support a theory I had on the Laws of Thermodynamics and life after death, I painted a series of infrared waves showing that when death happens, energy (heat) may transfer or is released out of the body. Due to the Law of the Conservation of Energy, energy can never fully be destroyed and therefore (and this is only an idea) nothing is ever truly gone. It may not be completely scientifically accurate but it gave me a sense of comfort in a time I needed it the most and I was able to visually relay my idea that everything is essentially connected. Science and spirituality are interesting but since my interests and ideas change frequently, I prefer to keep an open mind in life. Yoga and meditation are great outlets for reflecting on new concepts as well as listening to different types of music (I love talking about music so feel free to spark up a conversation!). Working at Painting with a Twist has allowed me to realize that this is the perfect job for me and I hope to encompass my interests into teaching fun-filled, inspirational classes!

Every since I can remember, art is the only thing I wanted to do. Truly my passion. I took my first painting class my junior year in high school and it was love at first brush stroke. I continued painted at my time at Buffalo State College,where I obtained a degree in art education. In my paintings today, I am inspired by nature and the symphony of colors it brings. Aside from painting, I am also an extreme crafter, knitter, and flair bartender. To put it simply, I make stuff, and I love doing it.

"The best teachers are those who show you where to look but don't tell you what to see” (Alexandra K. Trenfor). Each day of the week I have the greatest privilege of inspiring future young artists to create their own masterpieces. I love to teach art because of the limitless possibilities art offers to reach the young minds in our youth. It is my goal to help the people that I teach to achieve their highest potential. With art, people are free to create and express who they are and show the history of people from all corners of the world. Art is ever evolving, ever changing, can be interpreted again and again, can be a personal journey or a shared endeavor. I bring my enthusiasm and love of art history to each class.
