Our Artists

Ann Marie

Ann Marie

Ann Marie is a long time Auburn resident, franchise owner of Painting with a Twist and President of Amore Shenanigans, Inc. named to honor her shared Italian and Irish heritage. As a leader in the maritime and health care industries in the Pacific Northwest, she brings a combination of fun creative personality and business operations know-how. She is proud to follow in the footsteps of her mother, the late Patty McDonald – an educator, community activist, lobbyist and business woman committed to community service through citizen empowerment, social justice and government accountability. Growing up in Alaska, Ann Marie learned the value of diverse skills, challenging work and independence - all coming in handy as a small business owner! As a teenager, she sailed extensively with her grandparents on the Great Lakes and Caribbean. She spent many years working as a deckhand-cook-bartender-server on passenger vessels. These skills are also put to use daily with Painting with a Twist's food and beverage service! The opportunity to be a business owner, have loads of FUN and be of service to the community drew her out of corporate America into the Painting with a Twist studio. She hasn't looked back. Although career adventures have certainly taken her to all corners of the globe, Ann Marie enjoys the opportunity to "stay put" in Auburn and build new friendships with customers and local businesses. Ann Marie enjoys stepping on the stage as an artist for her favorite classes – rustic wood pallet cut outs, Rebeca Flott Screen Art and kids classes.
