Our San Antonio, TX - Northwest Painting with a Twist Artists
Hi all, I’m Ciera! I just moved to San Antonio from Nebraska. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska Kearney in 2020. My emphasis was in ceramics, but I have always enjoyed painting. I prefer to paint with acrylics but have dabbled in all sorts of painting mediums and really enjoy exploring new techniques and styles. Outside of the art world you can most likely find me watching tv and looking for a new place to travel to.
Hello, my name is Jasmine! I am a college student attending the University of Pittsburgh. I am pursuing a major in Art History and Visual Arts and am passionate about all types of literature and music. I love to cook and bake funky fermented foods with my family (sourdough bread is our favorite!) When I am not cooking or reading, you can catch me painting outside with my poodle puppy, trying to capture my favorite moments on a canvas.

Hi there, I'm Marissa! I'm known around for being a high-school art teacher and free-time photographer. I graduated from St. Mary's University in 2018 with my Bachelor's in Art Education. I've always been big on art in all its forms, but painting has always been a favorite of mine. Outside of that, you can find me playing Animal Crossing, watching a crime series, or hanging out with Winnie and Jasmine (world's most spoiled housecats).
Hello there. My name is Natalie, and once upon a time I was an art student with a passion for character illustration. I changed to Biology so I could work with animals, but continued to draw on my free time. About 6 years ago, I tried painting for the first time at Painting with a Twist and instantly fell in love. Currently, landscapes are my favorite subject. My preferred mediums are oils and acrylics, and I am not afraid to get messy enjoying the process of putting paint to the canvas. I am known for putting killer whales in all my paintings involving water, and having a major obsession with the video game "Final Fantasy VII."

I want other to experience the zone when creating art. where you don't think about what your doing you just go with the flow, and let the magic happens.
Hi, I'm Nicole! I discovered my passion for painting about 6 years ago. My strength was being put to the test during that time. I put a paintbrush in my hand and the moment it hit the canvas, I knew I'd found my way of coping in life. I specialize in abstract art, mainly through fluid pouring, but I almost always manipulate my paintings through the use of objects. Everyday I find myself looking for things I feel I can use to add to a paintings uniqueness. I do enjoy painting pictures with a paintbrush, but my preference for getting lost in my art, is to have less of an idea of what I'm painting until it's complete. I look at art as therapy. When emotional struggle sets in, painting is always the ray of sunshine I require to feel better. I dabble in resin and clay art as well, but my passion is and will always be acrylics on canvas. Aside from my art, my pride and joy is my (almost 7 year old) son and my fur-babies.
Hello everyone, my name is Reigna! I am currently a student at Northwest Vista pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Art. While I have always drawn and doodled from the time I was little, after watching multiple videos on different expressionist painters, I was inspired to try out painting and fell absolutely in love. After two semesters of painting courses that ended all too soon, I jumped at the opportunity to paint every day here at Painting with a Twist! I specialize in Acrylic Paint and when I'm not drawing or painting I'm usually playing Skyrim, surfing YouTube, or spending time with family and friends.
