Born and raised in Ohio, I am still a fairly new Florida resident. But not new to painting! As a child, as soon as I could grasp, I was always holding a brush, crayon or a pencil.
I graduated from Kent State with a Fine Art Degree, but I'm doing this because more than anything, I love it! I can't wait to take you from just appreciating painting to doing it yourself and having A BLAST!
Art and friendship are both very enjoyable, entertaining, relaxing, and even therapeutic. And with us, here at Painting with a Twist, you get BOTH at once! We're all friends here and we can't wait for you to join us and all our craziness.
See you soon.
Originally from Philadelphia, Brie has been drawing and painting since she was a child. In school, she filled her notebooks with silly or ironic cartoons which she found quite funny. Motivated by the desire to give family and friends “really cool Christmas presents”, Brie began painting personalized wooden boxes and ornaments to give as gifts. She now primarily works with acrylic paint on canvas and specializes in painting dreamy landscapes and pet portraits.
Brie believes that everyone is an artist and is delighted to be able to share her love of painting at Painting with a Twist. She is looking forward to the advancement that comes from experience and urges everyone to “just keep painting!”.
Shelby Hart is a Martin County local and has been dabbling in different techniques and materials since college. She works as a high school Art educator by day, and moonlights as an artist at Painting with A Twist. A graduate of Florida State University, she has been trying new things in her home studio and loves to work with her hands.
Shelby’s aesthetic has found itself to center mainly on fruits, and technique studies, with a bit of sea life sprinkled in. It’s no secret that she loves a good avocado! ??
