Ashley

Ashley

Ashley Cartwright is new to the Virginia area but did not travel far to get here. She is originally from northeastern North Carolina, where she received her bachelor's degree in art. Ashley is a proud mother to a zany and fun-loving little girl. She is her happiest when she can paint the day away in her studio or wander aimlessly through an art museum. Art has been Ashley's greatest love for as long as she can remember. She firmly believes that every one has creativity within them and it brings her great joy to know she helps bring out their creativity. Ashley is beyond thrilled to join the Painting with a Twist team and believes, like life, art should not be taken too seriously.

Tiffany Nelson is one of the artists at the Hampton studio. She has been painting and creating art her entire life, using all kinds of materials, such as acrylics, charcoal, wood, and clay. Tiffany recently graduated from James Madison University, where she earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees in History and Art History and minored in studio art. While at JMU, she worked as an assistant for the School of Art, Design, and Art History, where she experienced art from all over the country and of all different media such as sculpture, fibers, metalwork, and graphic design. After graduating she moved back home to Hampton, Virginia and settled into post-grad life. When Tiffany is not painting, she is usually spending time with her family – especially her two nieces and nephew. Tiffany is so excited to be a part of the Painting with a Twist family and cannot wait to create art every day with new faces and smiles!

Tina

Meet Tina Totten. She has an associate degree in fine arts, and she has been drawing, painting, and coloring for as long as she can remember. She enjoys crafting, sculpting, and costuming. She also has two sons. Tina loves to have fun. She once spent the night in the parking lot of Walt Disney World to meet the actors from the Star Wars movie. Her favorite TV show is Game of Thrones. When she grows up, she wants to be a makeup artist, and turn people into aliens and zombies. She likes listening to Prince, Jill Scott, Sade, New Edition, and Morris Day and the Time. Tina grew up in the 80's, and may still be stuck there watching MTV videos. Tina loves to travel, and Egypt is her dream destination. If you see her bopping her head in the car, she is probably listening to Disney music or movie soundtracks. Tina is ready to paint and have some fun!
