Malerie is a student at TAMU-CC and has been painting since before she could talk. Luckily, her little brother was too young to remember her painting his face with finger paints. She is involved in several organizations on campus, and in her free time (aka procrastinating from studying), she likes to bicycle and walk her roommate’s dog. Malerie currently uses her artistic talents in her marketing positions and can be found on fliers and even sidewalks at school. In addition to painting, her hobbies includes lettering, graphic design, and photography. She is excited to be a part of the PWAT team and share her 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!
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!!
My name is Amanda and I’m from the small valley town of Los Fresnos. I’ve always had a strong passion for art and I will soon be graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts at TAMUCC! Aside from my love for painting, I am also a tattoo artist at The Fellowship Tattoo Parlor here in Corpus. I look forward to teaching a class with you all and helping you realize your inner Bob Ross!
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!!
Candy, a retired roller girl and lifetime sugar addict, enjoys combing estate sales and antique shops. She is often in search of raggedy quilts or old furniture she pretends she will one day refinish.
She moved her family to Corpus Christi from Missouri in January of 2000 to be near the ocean. She cheers for the Kansas City Chiefs, wanders for hours on the beach, drinks entirely too much sweet tea and is on the never-ending hunt for the perfect cupcake.
Candy loved art long before adding her brand of graffiti to the box cars parked outside her high school. Her current favorite medium is watercolor, although she enjoys creativity in all forms. She draws, sews, bakes, builds pallet furniture and eats sprinkles straight from the jar.
Her style has been described as whimsical and eclectic. From her canvases down to her polka dot knee socks she says, "Life is too short to wear boring clothes or skip dessert."
When she's not making up silly song and dance routines about that night's dinner menu, she can usually be found blowing bubbles in her back yard with a lap full of Yorkies.
"Hi! I'm faith I love all things creative whether that's drawing, painting, or writing! I'm a local to Corpus Christi with dreams as big as the ocean. I hope through these classes I can inspire others to do what they love and even more so to create!

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!
Air Force Nurse, Dog Rescuer, Artist, Free-lance Writer, Travel Consultant...all of these describe Kim, as well as Wife, Mother, Daughter and Seeker of Junk. She spends her time juggling mostly! She can be found at the Flea Market digging thru junk looking for a treasure, at the shelter picking up a foster dog, or on Vacation somewhere beachy. Originally hailing from Louisiana, she has spent her life in search of Sun, Fun, and great food! Married to the love of her life who puts up with all of her quirky behavior (and sneaky spending on "junk" to clutter up his garage), she is just about the luckiest gal in the world! Her famous peach cobbler is legendary, and she cooks it (and shakes up a Martini or two) for her friends whenever she gets a chance! Her favorite quote? "Be the brightest crayon in the box".
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.
“I’m Mackenzie and I am currently a freshman at Texas A&M Corpus-Christi, pursuing a degree in Graphic Design. I’m a huge animal lover so you may see me stopped on the side of the road petting a random cat! Along with petting every cat I come across I do of course enjoy painting and any other medium of art I can get my hands on!”
