I'm AJ, jack of all artistic trades and master of... fun! After years of teaching Visual Art at Santa Fe High School, I went on to complete an M.A. from the University of Houston-Clear Lake with a concentration in Graphic Design. Now, in addition to my various roles at Painting with a Twist, I'm a working artist in materials ranging from clay to digital media. My creativity is fueled by curiosity, which keeps me feeling young and optimistic. What are you curious about today?
I have 2 daughters, 2 dogs and a husband. Love that they always support my passion for art
I've been with PWAT since November 2019 and it's been a blast. I teach high school art, work at PWAT, and run a craft business. Busy life. Happy life!
When I instruct my classes I make sure to always have a positive affirmation, a pro tip OR if your lucky a sassy joke for every attendee. I always have an enjoyable time teaching my PWAT classes and hope my painters do too! Book your class today!!
