Hey people. I recently started painting with acrylic and I recently landing here on the treasure coast but have no fear.... I owned and was an artist in a tattoo shop just outside of Detroit for 24 years so.... Art is art right???? The hardest part about this work is not getting too distracted by all the fun n jokes while painting... I am digging on these classes and all the people I have the pleasure to meet!!! I WANT MORE! Lets paint these canvases together!

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.

I grew up in Florida and I am so happy to remain here to raise my own children. Especially Martin County, where the love for creativity and art seems to grow stronger everyday. I studied Visual Fine Art at Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach. A perfect day is spent at the beach with the love of my life, Billy, and our daughters Lilah and Haven. It's my dream job to be able to paint with you here at Painting with a Twist! I hope I can encompass some traits from my heroes, Walt Disney and Lucille Ball, by guiding you to paint and making you laugh!

When I lived in New York; my 2nd grade class was selected to paint a Christmas themed mural on the windows of Burger King. The complements I recieved from my parents and other people present, fueled my journey as an artist. Since then I have been improving my talents through trial and error. I must be doing something right since today I work at Painting With A Twist. So come on in and paint with me cause I'm a cool kid and that's what cool kids do.

Ellen Lyons

It’s been told that Ellen could draw well before she could talk, but once the latter was mastered, she took no pause for either ever since. A resident of Stuart Fla. since 1977, she graduated Martin Heiney Cow School with her pencils aimed in the direction of Sarasota, where she earned a B.F.A. from Ringling College of Art and Design, majoring in Illustration. From there she went on to explore vast avenues on the creativity map, such as, Sign painting, murals, Tshirt and logo design, portraits, book illustrating and crafting of all kinds. Her love for words has manifested in the writing of children’s books and freelance copy writing for catalogs and websites. With experience in teaching art to both adults and children, she knows for certain that there is a creative corner in every mind and an urge in every person to express themselves. Currently living the dream as a proud member of the talented staff at Painting With A Twist/Stuart, Ellen brings her love for laughter and colorful coaching to the classroom, creating a relaxing and enjoyable painting experience for all!

Hello my name is Katheen aka ‘Kat’. I am a Florida native and recently moved south to this area, with my husband and our three kids. I am thrilled to join the PWAT team, and couldn’t imagine a better place to share my love for both Art and Teaching with everyone! I am definitely a very upbeat and positive person, and I look forward to helping everyone bring out their “inner-artist”. Together we can all enjoy the super fun and therapeutic benefits painting can offer! And just remember, “If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” -Vincent Van Gogh
