Our Pleasant Hill, CA Painting with a Twist Artists

Jolene

Jolene

Ciao! My name is Jolene. Born and raised in San Francisco. I was a customer for two years before taking on the world of Painting with a Twist, by taking ownership of the studio. Coming from a Human Resources corporate background, I strive to maintain a fun atmosphere for our TWIST community. My passions include family/friends, music, arts and crafts with my daughter, and international travel. Tapping into my creative side helps me work through problems I’m trying to solve. Expression through painting and designing is my therapy. And the wine is good too! I love to see customers leave their burdens at the door and turn their frowns upside down. I’m excited to welcome you to unwind and get creative at Twist Pleasant Hill!

Lily - Studio Manager

Hola! My name is Lilly, short for Lilliana, yes very exotic LOL. I am the Studio Manager at Painting with a Twist - Pleasant Hill, which is now my favorite thing to say. Like many of the artists here, I started off as a customer before joining the fun Twist staff of artists. The studio is my home away from home. It brings me so much joy to paint and provide our guests a carefree escape. Apart from teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, whether that's staying in to watch movies, play board games or go dancing and meeting new people. I love it all. Being able to bring smiles and help create memories to cherish is truly rewarding. For a bubbly, sweet, and super fun artist to get the party started come take one of my classes! Cant wait to see all those new fun faces at the studio.

Anna - Art Instructor

Hello everyone and welcome to Painting With a Twist! A little about myself, my name is Anna and I am located in the flourishing Bay Area, California. I have always been drawn to creativity and have been painting since I could hold a brush. Over the last few years I’ve begun teaching here at Painting With a Twist. I am in love with painting as a profession and a passion. My goal is to learn all I can about different techniques used by masters new and old and I like to sprinkle in these lessons to give a little taste of fine art with the fun art of TWIST. Everyday something new inspires me, whether it’s one of my many critters just hanging out with me while I create new works, a great conversation, or inspiring insight about the world around us. Come and paint and learn with me as we create a wonderful work of art and a fantastic environment that you will remember for years to come!

Deshone - Art Instructor

Hello! My name is Deshone and I was introduced to Painting with a Twist by my good friend and amazing fellow artist Anna. A little bit about me is that I've been going to college since 2016 as an Art History Major. I've painted with mostly acrylic paints and I really enjoy creating artwork. I love helping people as well as I was a preschool teacher for 2 years and I just enjoy being able to here and help with whatever I can. Seeing people strive is a big happiness of mine to witness. Painting with a Twist has given me a dream come true in being able to be an artist and I get to help people which also makes me very happy. So please come sit with me and let's create some art!

Hello, my name is Kerry. Art has always been one of my favorite things to do. I also love animals and enjoy being outdoors experiencing the beauty of nature. I also like exploring the world and traveling to interesting and exotic places, such as Hawaii, Australia, Iceland, Norway and Denmark. (This is me having fun at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in Australia.) I’ve been lucky because I have family in a few of these places to show me around and share the fun. I have been drawing and painting since I was a little. I’ve also been a teacher and like to have fun sharing my love of art with others. I’ve enjoyed many art classes such as drawing, portraiture, landscape, and still life painting in acrylics and oils and continue to paint and draw as much as I can, but I think creating art is much more fun when it is shared with others. Now I’m lucky again because I get to share the fun of creating art with you at Painting with a Twist.
