Hey! My name is Lauren and I've been working with Painting With A Twist for over 5 years and I LOVE it! I've been into art since I was little and I I graduated with a BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. I enjoy teaching our customers how to do something new. I love to have a good time and crack jokes while I teach, because after all, we like to say this is FUN art, not FINE art. So, come join me for some good fun, good music and a good time at our Metairie studio!
I have always loved art. Along with my personal work where I specialize in realistic portraits and anime-style art, I love teaching it! I've taught art in a classroom but now prefer personal lessons and working in Painting With a Twist’s fun setting. No matter your art goals, I believe art should be a fun and positive experience!
I am an adrenaline junkie that has climbed straight out of the Tennessee mountains to explore the swamps and excitement of the Big Easy! With sarcasm and a sloppy paintbrush, I have taught hundreds of classes at our Nashville and Mandeville studio. I just moved to New Orleans and am eager to share my passion for painting and partying with you! When I am not making a mess at our studio, I can also be found wandering the forests of our National and State Parks or getting into trouble downtown. I do not like to keep still and love to camp, hike, kayak, rock climb... heck, I have even jumped out of a plane! When you see me in the studio, ask me about my latest bruise.
