Our Corpus Christi, TX Painting with a Twist Artists
Malerie - Owner #malpal
Hi, I’m Malerie and I am currently finishing up my Master’s in Business Administration from TAMU-CC! I received my Bachelor’s in Management and Marketing and I’ve been painting since before I could talk—luckily my little brother was too young to remember me thinking his face made a great surface for finger painting—and I love pretty much anything creative! In addition to painting, I dabble in other crafts including coaster making, graphic design, fun makeup looks, and photography. My minor obsessions include Christmas, corgis, iced coffee, true crime, turtles, lettering, and collecting shot glasses. I love being a part of Painting with a Twist and sharing my love of art with others!
There are very few things that I enjoy more than painting and drawing. I was an art major at UT Austin, where I spent countless nights in the studio making messes (and maybe a little art, as well). Currently back in my hometown of Corpus Christi, I enjoy spending my time with family and friends, going to art walks and local farmer’s markets, and creating things. Painting is an incredible mode of creativity; not only can we express ourselves through the creation of an image, but here at Painting with a Twist, we have lots of fun doing it!
Corynne - Assistant Manager #corn
Hi there! My name is Corynne & i was born and raised in Corpus Christi! I love our city! I am a collector/hoarder of things I love, whether they be manga, make-up or art supplies -- that I swear I am going to use. I like to spend my days bingeing TV shows while my puppies’ sit on my lap, I usually try and balance a sketchbook on top of one of them; they make good lap desks… sometimes. I have always loved art and have even received my bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts with a teaching certification from Texas A&M Corpus Christi. I love making art, but more importantly, I love teaching people to make art! I have always believed making art should be fun, which is why I think Painting with a Twist is such a great fit. Come paint with me!!
Mabel..... Senior Artist..... #persephonemabel
I'm from a small south texan town called Falfurrias. Since I was very young, it became apparent that the only things I had going for me were my interests and skills in art related activities, I embrace this completely. The only other thing that brings me joy besides making art, is helping other people find joy through making art.
Jordan..... Senior Artist..... #jordymcshorty
Hello, I’m Jordan! I’m a born and raised Corpus Christi, Texan! I have my Associates degree in Studio Art from Del Mar College and will be going to TAMUCC in the fall to complete my Bachelors in Fine Arts and get a Teaching Certification.
I’ve spent most my time since graduating being a freelance artist. Besides my obvious love for art, I also am an avid collector of Pokémon items, along with other games and also a makeup hoarder! Doing makeup is another creative outlet for me alongside digital art and painting. I am also somewhat of a cat lady, currently at 3 inside cats and 2 outdoor cats. My family says that’s the limit..but we’ll see about that!
I’ve always dreamt of being able to teach others how to make beautiful art! I can’t wait to spend my time with you at Paint with a Twist!
I was raised in the Hill Country and I grew up watching and helping my Mom and Grandma paint! My Dad got me into the outdoors with archery and fishing as soon as I was walking. I enjoy being outdoors whether on water or land. I followed my arrow to Corpus Christi for college and fell in love with the beach! I love having craft days where I’ll work on one of my various projects often including: painting, scrapbooking, or sewing. I’m looking forward to these days with you at Painting with a Twist!!
Hi! I'm Cora and I am currently pursuing a Major in Design/Technical Theatre and Minor in Dance at TAMU-CC! Basically, I'm studying how to design and execute productions on every level other than acting and directing. This means costumes, hair and makeup, lighting, sound, and sets! I have always had a creative soul and have been expressing myself through painting, drawing, and performing since I figured out what feet were. I trained in classical ballet and many other styles of dance for 15 years and have painted more canvases and backdrops than I can count! I also dabble in Body Art with Face Painting and Henna Tattoos and am currently learning the art of the needle as a tattoo artist. I love all things Disney and beach related and I am always down to dress up! Art has been a big part of my life and I cannot wait to share my love for creativity with you!
Hi I'm Megan! I am a Corpus Christi native. I am working on my BA in photography with a minor in Art History. Don't be surprised if I throw out some fun art facts during our painting sessions together. I am a mother of three beautifully rambunctious boys and a caretaker to practically a zoo of animals. If I'm not creating some form of art I am probably out at my stables training horses, or at home loving on my carpet sharks (ferrets). I am an abstract artist by nature and LOVE anything with bright and messy color. I am extremely excited to be part of the Painting with a Twist team and look forward to painting with you! Let's have some fun!
That one guy who occasionally answers the phone or checks you in :)
