Since the first time I put on the blue Bottle & Bottega artist apron, I knew I was on to something special. There’s a simple beauty to making art, whether it’s your first time or your 500th time picking up a paintbrush. Bottle & Bottega helps you discover the creativity you had long forgotten or never knew you had. Whether it’s with a team of co-workers, a group of friends, or just a reason to do something different, everyone can benefit from the unique experience of art.
Studio Manager – I have been painting/sculpting and drawing people for as long as I can remember. I process emotion, connection, and love through art. I enjoy sharing that process with others and encouraging them to find that within themselves.
I believe we heal ourselves, our communities, and the world with art. I hope to create pieces that spark positive social change. I am a recent PSU Theatre and Film graduate.
Marketing Manager, Master of Puns – Jessica is the wizard behind the curtain in all things social media and marketing. If you are DMing with us, you can bet you are talking to Jess.
Growing up in a small town without much access to art, I pursued art in college at Western Oregon University. After graduating I left my small town and moved up here to Portland to find a job that would let me express my creativity and be apart of a creative community. I lucked out, and am now instructing painting classes here at this adorable studio. I'm getting to pursue my creative passions...teaching here and pursuing my own ceramics business on the side. Being a part of the art community, and collaborating with other people, is one of my favorite parts about working here.
Though I’ve been painting for most of my life, I never knew I could make a living painting while engaging others in art at the same time. Simply being in a room with other humans while we all create is a magical and inspiring feeling I hope as many people as possible can experience. Though I went to the University of Oregon for English and spend the other half of my life writing, I’m always ecstatic when I get to pick up a brush.
