Micah Ruland

Micah Ruland

Micah (My-kah) Micah is a local aspiring artist based out of Longview, Texas, hoping to bring a little uniqueness, if not beauty, to the world. While her artwork is created primarily in acrylic paint on canvas, she likes to hopefully leave places better than they were. In doing so loves to recycle surfaces, with paintings spanning many surface types from metal to glass, murals on floors, walls, ceilings & even damaged vinyl records, with everything in between.

Alex Lichty

Alex Lichty

Alex Lichty has just recently been proven to exist, blowing the minds of cryptozoologists worldwide. People who have observed him closely report a thick sarcasm and dry wit. He's fostered a strong relationship with his muse, having an obvious love for absurd and abstract ideas as well as the intricate beauty of the natural world. Aside from that, he is a fan of all things spooky and weird. As he states directly, "I just like freaky things and cute animals." Along with that, he has a love for teaching children's classes, hoping to help foster the same love of art and independence that was given to him as a child.

Leti Beau

Leti Beau

Leti Beau is a professional artist based in Longview, Texas. Her time is spent between the PWAT studio acting like Bob Ross and the Gregg County Historical Museum as Membership Coordinator. When at home, they manage several hobbies including socializing for sport, gaming with friends, absorbing internet trends, and being a loving mother to two cats. One of their favorite things about teaching art is encouraging the innate creativity everyone has without sweating the small stuff. For example, whether a painting is “good” or “bad”, it’s still great art if you have a great time creating it! Leti’s “fun fact”- she looks forward to becoming a robot, which seems to be more and more of a reality by each passing year. For commissions and inquiries: letibeau.art@gmail.com

Ally

Ally

Ally is an East Texas native who has been creating since she could hold a crayon. To her, art is the only thing that has ever made sense. She knew she wanted a career in art as early as high school, when the doodles became the reason for less than average math grades. As an artist, she has the most experience as a watercolorist, something she has been practicing for nearly a decade. She has only begun her journey with acrylic paint as of May 2022. Ally has the heart of a hippie and the mind of a dreamer. She takes inspiration from vibrant colors, nature, and song lyrics- which would explain the endless supply of Rush song lyrics flowing through her head. In her spare time, Ally models for local photographers, and enjoys staying home for quality time with her two cats.

Howdy y'all! I'm the owner and occasional artist at Twist-Longview, and a mom to two boys! A native East Texan by birth, a natural artist I am not! I graduated from Arp high school, have a Financial Planning degree from Baylor University, and always knew I wanted to open my own business one day. After attending my sister’s bachelorette party at Painting with a Twist in Dallas, I fell in love with the business. After spending my entire budget attending all the Painting with a Twist events I could, I decided to pursue my dream and open a studio with my husband Casey, in East Texas. With a love of crafting projects and a passion for business and management, the Painting with a Twist franchise has been a perfect match. After 10 years of owning this business, I still love my job and getting to know all of our Twisters! Hey, it's not really work if you love what you're doing!
