Malia Gomez was taken to Painting With A Twist for a fun date night out and fell in love with painting! She practiced painting on her own and found herself back at PWAT's doorstep a couple years later seeking a job and since has been working towards her BFA degree in Drawing at UTSA. When she's not creating she spends time with her Chocolate Lab Melanie!
Maria 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!
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.

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!!
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.
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.
Love the beard... that is all.
I would describe myself as a loving, caring and passionate person. I am enthusiastic and hopeful about everything. I put my all into my artwork which helps me come up with unique pieces.
