Hi Sunshine! Kristy is from Lisbon, Ohio and moved to the area to begin her journey to a Masters Degree in Art Therapy and Counseling from Seton Hill University. She has a passion for helping others and a career that she loves. In 2008 she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art from Hiram College.
She’s a firm believer in art being accessible to everyone, that is why she is so excited and honored to be one of our Artist. Kristy loves the idea of everyone being an artist and having the opportunity to create something beautiful. People second guess their artistic ability and she believes we are all creative and wants to encourage that. She believes there is no better way to create then with a glass of wine, and a beautiful image, all while sharing laughs and having fun with friends, family, or complete strangers. Art should be fun, relaxing, and everyone should be encouraged to create.
Megan Allison has always enjoyed all aspects of the arts her entire life. She loved it so much that she decided to go to school for it. Megan is currently enrolled at Seton Hill University for Art Education. Her goal as an artist is to inspire others to use their creative talents and of course have some fun while doing so! So let's pick up that paintbrush, and let's make some art!
Growing up in Pittsburgh, Judy was always looking for things to create and paint. Discovering so many different crafts and artwork, she decided she wanted to be an artist. But, as a single Mom she spent 30 years working in the insurance industry as a Corporate Insurance Broker helping growing businesses protect their most valuable assets.
During that time, she remained involved with art, as a teacher of stained glass and folk art painting. When her Daughter introduced her to Painting With A Twist, she realized that the concept of bringing Family and Friends together through the tool of painting was something she was determined to bring to her community as a gathering place for people of all ages to paint, drink wine, relax, and just have fun.
That is how Painting With A Twist of Greensburg was born.
Jenn is originally from Greensburg, PA. As a child, she was always creative and art was always a part of her life painting on any substrate possible.
