Our Corpus Christi, TX Painting with a Twist Artists

Hey, I'm Malerie--the owner and manager here as well as an artist! I fell in love with Painting with a Twist when my mom took me to an event back when I was in high school, and I knew from that day that it was my dream to work in a studio at some point. Fast forward a few years, I began working as an artist here in the summer of 2018! I took over the studio in the summer of 2021, and now you can find me handling the daily business operations and teaching some events here and there. Outside of the studio, I like to spend my time with my husband, my friends, and my two adorable corgis--Max and Archie. 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! I originally came to Corpus Christi in the fall of 2016 to study at TAMU-CC, and I earned my Bachelor's in Management and Marketing as well as my Master's in Business Administration from there. I'm a proud Islander and Alpha Gam Alum :) I love being a part of Painting with a Twist and sharing my love of art with others! Come check out our studio for a fun experience unlike any other.

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!!

Megan is a natural born artist with a big personality! This gal has been instructing for 5+ years, so rest assure, you are in good hands. Her hands down favorite thing about working for PWAT is seeing the guest light up knowing they walked in with a blank canvas and are walking out with something beautiful they did on their own. Not to mention they got to hang out with the best instructor ever!!! Having this Cat Momma as your artist is always a great time.

Hello! My name is Bailey! I've been painting and drawing ever since I could remember. Painting can be so relaxing and so fun! Other than painting, I like to spend my time playing guitar and spending time with family and friends. I think quality time with the people you love is priceless. I'm so happy to be a part of the Painting with a Twist team and I look forward to painting with you!

Hello, I am Dani! I am a senior at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi majoring in ESL education. I love teaching art and being part of the Painting with a Twist family. My favorite color is orange because I love orange soda and the Texas Longhorns. I am a huge Disney nerd and have a cat named Dinah, like from Alice in Wonderland. I also like to do other crafts like candle making and wire wrap jewelry. My inspiration is my infamous mother Maria Brito and the colorful billionaire artist Romero Britto. Let’s all make a painting full of colors together!

Summer #SummerTime

Howdy hey! My name is Summer and I have lived in Corpus Christi pretty much my entire life! I have never been outside of Texas before so the concept of “seasons” is very foreign to me. I only know hot and slightly less hot. Oh and rain. Can’t forget the rain! I have always been interested in art since I was a little girl and actively vandalized the walls of my childhood home as “practice”. I also work as a face painter and photographer because I’m fancy like that! I feel most myself when I have a paint brush in my hand and I’m so happy I get to express that with Painting with a Twist! So, if you like art and chaos, come join me and we can have a great time!

Hey, I'm Malerie's husband, Hunter. You might see me around the studio answering the phone, checking you in, or helping refill your paint. I'm not a paint artist the way the rest of the team here is, but you can often catch me doing my craft of making cocktails downtown at The Omni's Topsider Lounge or at The Annex.
