Emily is a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and has been an artist at Painting with a Twist since April 2015 and current studio manager. The thing Emily loves the most about teaching at Painting with a Twist is going from being total strangers to feeling like fast friends by the time the class is over! When she's not painting at home, you can find her playing board games or Frisbee golf in the park.
