Melissa always knew that she could become more than "just a secretary!"
All of her life she has enjoyed being artsy - drawing, creating, painting, etc. As she "matured" she realized a love for good wine too. So, during a visit to her hometown in New Orleans, she found Painting with a Twist where painting & wine were a match made in Heaven! She purchased her first franchise before she took the first class! The rest is history!
Interesting Fun Fact: Melissa parachuted out of a perfectly good airplane - once!!
Nik has enjoyed art since he first learned to pick up a paint brush! He graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park with a Bachelors in Secondary Art Education. When he is not spending time at PWAT, he teaches for SAISD. Whether it is a class of kids or grown adults, Nik enjoys any opportunity to teach and share his wealth of knowledge and artistic creativity with the world!
I am fascinated by the exploration of mediums through their physicality and nature. I am also intrigued by purposeful and impactful themes in art. The creative process helps me to discover truths about myself and the world.
Danielle the "Paint Goddess!" After working an uber serious job during the day, nothing helps me find my zen like instructing my PWAT - Artisans Alley customers through some amazing paintings. I love helping customers find their inner creativity and being able to nurture that with my special brand of sass. I want to meet all the budding artist that the San Antonio area has, so c'mon down and meet me at the easels.
MJ has been with us since the very beginning, and during the daytime she doubles as our Studio Manager. She loves instructing at PWAT and has been known to give out free hugs during her classes. Besides art, she loves dogs...especially her 2 chihuahuas who are every bit as hyper and happy as she is!
Sean was the very first artist to get hired at this studio, so let's just say he know's his away around a canvas! He is our resident artist/inventor so he is more than just a pretty face!!
