Our Deerfield Beach, FL Painting with a Twist Artists
Since high school art class, painting and crafts have been my passion. I am so excited to share with others. When you blend friends, art & wine it is sure to create a masterpiece and memories to last a lifetime. It's not about the technique, it's about the fun. So whether you are "a Picasso" or a "two year old doodler," a night of PWAT will be one of the best nights of your life.
From my humble beginnings I was age of seven when I had my first experience with art. In the small town of Ponta Grossa, Brazil my house was located on a very steep slope of black dirt walls. As a child I would use a butter knife to carve faces into the dirt walls. The dirt was soft so any rain fall would clean my canvases and I'd carve again.
As I grew older my parents decided to move us to the United States. Here I took an interest in charcoal art and learned how to sketch. These skill showed very useful in the time to come.
As my curiosity grew fonder I drew my attention towards the art of the scrimshander. There was such beauty in Victorian furniture carvings that I decided to study and learn the craft. A few months later I opened my first small business "Big and Little Treasures" were I purchased old used furniture, carved new designs into them and resold them as my personal artwork.
Art has always been a huge part of my being. And I only look to master my craft and learn new skills.
Hi, my name is Emily! I LOVE to fish, watch movies, and play with Lucy Lou, my Shiba Inu rescue. I’ve been painting since I was little girl and it is one of my favorite pastimes! I was born in South Florida but spent the last six years of my life in Alaska working as a zipline guide and most recently, on a whale watching boat! I can’t wait to have fun and make beautiful art with each and every one of you!
Whats up?! I'm Mariela. I have a passion for creativity so I can't wait to share it with everybody that comes into paint and party! I'm also an animal lover, and am studying to be a veterinarian!
I grew up on Long Island and graduated with a BFA in Communication Design from Pratt Institute, centennial class, in NYC. Like most New Yorkers, I moved down here with my lovely wife and now have two teenagers. I love to paint in my spare time and was heavily influenced by current speed painter, Dan Dunn after seeing one of his performances. This has allowed me to go from creating a beautiful painting in days to now just a matter of hours. My next goal is to get it from hours to minutes. Sports, entertainment figures and pets are my subjects of choice but I will paint anything.
I enjoy making people laugh as much as I like teaching them how to paint. I love up-beat rock and contemporary music so you will hear songs from the whole spectrum while your painting with me. If we can all sing, dance, paint and drink at the same time, then we have a party Happnin'!! I can't wait to paint with you at PWAT- Deerfield Beach!!!
