Our Colorado Springs, CO - East Painting with a Twist Artists
KayLee is a lead artist and studio manager! She loves teaching all types of classes, but especially the Paint Your Pet workshops where she can work with individuals one on one to create custom masterpieces. KayLee got her BFA in Art Education with an emphasis in painting in 2013 (from Texas Tech - wreck em!), moved to Colorado Springs in 2015, and started working for this studio in 2016. She's taken art/teaching gigs all over the world (including Japan & The Dominican Republic) and was a local public school art teacher for 8 years before becoming our studio's full time manager. In her own time she creates large scale, color field and abstract paintings, which you may see around town in local art shows!
Brittney has been making messes since childhood. She studied fine art at Columbia College Chicago, worked as a scenic carpenter and painter for the professional theatre world, lived in South Korea, and now resides in Colorado Springs. When she’s not teaching painting classes you can find her at home doing freelance art, design, and podcast editing. If the weather is nice you'll find her gardening or on a hike.
Cynthia has been a commercial artist for almost 30 years, working mostly as a photographer and painting as her other passion! She wears a lab coat at the studio because we have serious fun here! Cynthia loves to belly dance and play Japanese Taiko drums too.
Jessica has been painting since college and creating art in other forms for over 20 years. Outside of the studio, she is a seamstress and costume maker who especially enjoys making cosplay costumes for conventions. Jess brings fun and kindness to each class and has the coolest hair.
Have you tried a class with Kim? Kim has spent years teaching paint and sip classes most recently in the Carolinas before coming to Painting with a Twist East on Powers. You'll see Kim's work in the Springs and Denver art shows. She loves being in nature and feeling the good vibes on a hike. When Kim isn't on stage you'll find her spending time with her children.
Cathleen loves art in all forms. She loves teaching classes at Painting with a Twist East on Powers and encouraging others to experiment and grow their skills. When not on the stage, Cathleen is a hair artist and you'll be surprised at what she does.
Get into the Bob spirit with Cathleen at her next class. Cheers to that!
Finn "Aves" Willman is a professional artist based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. When not painting in the Twist studio you can find them doing digital illustration for their freelance clients, hanging in a few galleries, making music, traveling, and having a blast picking up new skills.
As the 7th child of 15, Cedric's parents were diligent in teaching and training him in the light of love. Laughter was a major part in his education and an influence throughout his college years, where he majored in Graphic Design. He is a single father of 4 and a freelance artist!
