Ashley D.

Hi, I’m Ashley! I was born in Pittsburgh and raised with a paintbrush in my hand. I’m a recent graduate of CCAC and am looking forward to the next step in my academic career. I have always enjoyed the arts and creating something out of nothing. Whether it be paint, clay, or even my tablet, I’m always busy making something new! I’m glad to be here at Twist South Side, and I can’t wait for you to come and enjoy the experience as well!

Hi there! I'm Christen, and I am very excited to be here at Twist South Side. I moved to Pittsburgh not long ago and am an intern architect downtown. Art has always been a talent of mine, and even though I didn't study it in college, I enjoy painting and drawing as hobbies. Being at Painting with a Twist is a great opportunity, and it is an amazing place for us to come together and paint. I look forward to seeing you!

Hey! I'm Cynthia, and I'm so excited to be at Twist South Side. I have a BA in Visual Arts and a passion for anything creative: painting, ballroom dance, collage, stained glass, writing murder mysteries, you get the idea! I'm so happy to be living out one of my dreams by working as both a graphic designer and an artist. I can't wait to see you on your next visit!

Hi guys! My name is Jenny, and I'm from the block. Actually, I'm from the City of Brotherly Love, but don't hold that against me! I'm an experienced painter who's been studying art in various forms for over ten years. Although I have a degree in Film and Media Arts from Temple University and primarily work in video production, painting has always been one of my lifelong hobbies. I began to turn my passion into a profession with commissioned paintings and illustration, and a few years later I joined the Painting with a Twist family! Having the opportunity to pass the knowledge my art teachers gave me onto others is an incredibly fulfilling experience, and with my musical theater and performance background, I'm committed to keeping your learning experience fun! When I'm not producing or painting, you can find me riding my horse, attending Comic Cons, enjoying craft ales, rocking out at metal concerts, or working on my current comic, Gibson And The Apocalypse, which can be read on horsenation.com or my art instagram account, @jennykammart. I look forward to seeing you at Twist South Side soon!

Art is the act of pure inspiration; that's my motto, and just like in Ratatouille, "Everyone can cook," I believe that everyone can paint! The best part of my job is being able to help people realize talent they didn't know they had. I’m Pittsburgh born and raised, and I love my city (and the Steelers and Penguins of course). I have my BFA in Fine Arts from Edinboro University with a concentration in drawing and a minor in art history. I also do commissions, and I'm experienced in all types of media including oil paint, watercolor, ink, charcoal, and graphite. I've been an art instructor for many years before I came to Twist South Side, so I've taught people with different levels of experience. If you're a novice, don't be scared to paint! I guarantee you'll end up with something you can be proud of. If you take a class with me just be ready for my corny personality and nerdy jokes!

Hey, I’m Meg! I was born in California, but I have lived here in the ‘Burgh for most of my life. I’m a graduate of Point Park University with a BFA in Animation & Visual Effects, and I had an internship with Animal Media Group, a local media studio downtown. Additionally, I work with kids, as I am also employed at our very own Carnegie Science Center! I’ve always had a strong passion for storytelling and the arts. My love extends from animation, to digital art, to drawing, and, of course, to painting. When I’m not creating, writing, or working on my own side projects, you can find me enjoying various video games, movies, cartoons, and TV shows. So, come on down to Twist South Side to paint with me!

Hi! I'm Victoria, and I'm an avid mural artist that always includes the community in each one of my public works. When I'm not painting, I'm raising funds for the Cultural Trust and other local non-profits. In my spare time you can find me snuggling my dog Roxanne (the most perfect angel ever). I love being able to bring out the creative side of everyone, so grab an apron and let’s get to painting!
