Catherine is an artist; once-upon-a-time she got her BA in ceramics, but these days she limits her artistic expression to basketry, fiber-arts, drawing, sewing, and, of course- painting. In addition to artistic pursuits, she is also a full-time student at Rowan University, working towards certification in elementary and special education. She loves Painting with a Twist because it gives her an opportunity to show people how to do things they didn't know they were capable of- all while having a great time with friends and family.

My name is Lisa, I am a illustrator and graphic designer. I went to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, I have a BFA in painting and drawing and a MS in media design from Full Sail University in Florida. I enjoy anything that has to do with art and exploration. I have so much fun instructing painting at PWAT because I can play around with guest while they enjoy the experience of painting a full picture. I like to make people laugh and have a good time at PWAT. I am currently employed as an art teacher while working on my art portfolio. I look forward to my career as a graphic designer and traveling to different countries. One of my favorite quotes is “Don’t wait for the right opportunity, create it.” – George Bernard Shaw.
The Arts have always been a passion of mine. In high school I took art for as many electives as I could and I looked for any excuse to hang out in the art room. I attended Ramapo College, where, after a year in, I decided to change my major from math to art -best decision ever! Today, I work as a middle school math teacher, but art still remains important to me. I am the Drama Director at my school, where I not only get to direct the plays, but also create scenery and costumes and share my love of art with my students. Painting with a Twist has also been a great opportunity to paint, share my love of painting, and have fun doing it!
