Michael Starr Castaneda is a multitalented artist ready to paint this party right! Everyone calls him Mikey because he’s that fun! Mikey is an awarded tattooist, apprenticing several reputable artists. When his first daughter was born he left the tattoo shops and began his career as a senior web/print designer and programmer in the financial industry. Shortly after his second daughter and squarespace were born he left web design and became an electrician. A few years later he’s become an electrical foreman and painting instructor at Painting With A Twist. With all those diverse skills Mikey has to be capable of teaching something worth remembering? Even after a drink or two.
I submerged myself in all arts from a young age. I was originally interested in the performing arts since high school, being a thespian along with choir. As I got older, painting became more of an interest, so I started teaching myself through tutorials and places just like this! It became so much of a passion, that I decided to go into the field professionally so I could spend more time doing it! Now with my new passion, I hope to teach others the same joy I get from painting!
