Our Palm Coast, FL Painting with a Twist Artists
Making moments more fun and beautiful one brushstroke at a time. I have been painting and drawing ever since I could hold a pencil or brush. My education includes The Atlanta College of Art (now Savannah College of Art & Design Atlanta campus), The Art Institute of Atlanta, and most recently Broward College in Fort Lauderdale to update my skill set into the 21st century with Digital Graphic Design Technology. I formerly owned a company specializing in Faux Finishing and Murals in South Florida, but now happily live in North Florida and make my living painting pet portraits, designing eye-catching logos and corporate identity, and as an artist at Painting With A Twist.
I’m originally from California. I’ve always had an appreciation for art . I remember studying a piece of art my older sister had when I was very young and being fascinated by it . I remember it to this day. I took many art classes in school and always turned to painting as my escape. When my daughter was young I enrolled her in private art lessons. She learned pastels and is so very talented. We have a tradition of doing a piece of art for one another for Christmas. I owned my own design business in Louisiana, then in California for 30 years. I was inspired by an artist known for his paintings of interiors. I developed my own style and did the same , combining my love of both . A local store that specialized in French Antiques and interiors sold my paintings. My husband and I recently retired and moved to Palm Coast. We have been here for a year and love it . As barely a day goes by without a brush in my hand, Painting with a Twist has been ideal for me . I would love to share my joy of painting with you .
Hello there! My name is Niki. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to Palm Coast in 1991. Art has been a passion of mine since I was a child. Throughout grade school, I was entered into the majority of art contests and normally placed in each one. I’d always wanted to be an artist or an entertainer, so you can basically say that I have my dream job! I am a self taught artist and I am extremely proud to admit that! It’s incredible what you are capable of if you push yourself! I am a mother of three incredible boys and I’m happily married to my best friend! Life may not be perfect, but it’s perfect enough for me!
