Our Port Charlotte, FL Painting with a Twist Artists
Hello! My name is Anabel. All my life I have loved art. I've been painting since I was able to stand up and ask for a paintbrush. I'm originally from Miami, Florida, born into an all-cuban family. I grew up in a family of amazing cooks, expert carpenters, ultra-talented seamstresses, and extremely talented artists. Being surrounded by this creativity and love of art just brought me to love art all the more. I do love teaching as well, and hope to be a teacher one day. My main goal as an art teacher would be to push imagination to the wildest it can be. Decide what your own colors should be, create what you want and make it however you want it to be created! My mom has told me all my life "Don't sit inside the box, jump out of it and paint some doors, windows, and flowers", to this day, I stick to that!
I am a self-taught artist originally from Northern Ohio now living in Englewood. I have always been passionate about art and focused for many years on drawing. However,in 2010 I discovered my love for painting. Since then,I haven't been able to stop! In fact, I now work as a professional artist, working on commission from my studio.I have also become well-known for my pioneering and innovative, new medium-sculpting common,everyday facial tissue into stunning works of art. I love having fun and being creative, and am very passionate about painting and now have the ability to teach others my passion at Painting With A Twist. I look forward to building confidence in others and awakening their creativity!
