Melissa Q.

Hello, my name is Melissa! I was born and raised in New York, and have been living in Arizona, since 2007. I have a degree in graphic design and in fine arts and art history, from Briarcliffe College (in New York). Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a deep-rooted love and passion for art (whether it was drawing, painting, portraits, still-life, caricatures, cartoon characters, etc. - it’s all amazing, for me). In my free time, I really enjoy painting (and doing collaborations and commissions), cooking, baking, and even doing make-up and hair! It’s ALL art, just different types of canvas! Art (in some form), has always been a relevant part of my life, and I love the fact that I can now share my passion and talent (in the form of painting) with all of you, in an amazingly fun and exciting way! Painting With A Twist, is all about the fun and smiles, so I hope everyone enjoys this extraordinary experience! And as this studio’s manager, I intend to do all that I can, to ensure that everyone does! Please follow me on Instagram: @wildfire_angel_artist, and feel free to email me for collaborations or commission work - melissa.s.quinn@gmail.com Thanks! :)

Hi, I'm Ana! I'm an artist from Washington and much of my art is influenced by nature and the outdoors of the Pacific Northwest. I've been painting since a young age and have focused a lot on watercolor and oil paints as well as acrylic but I also love learning new skills and doing specialized projects. One of my motivations for sharing my art is that I love to show others what amazing talents they possess and how with a little practice they can really shine!

Hi my name is Elayna. I moved to Arizona 5 years from Oakland, California for college and stayed since. I’ve been doodling ever since i can remember but I didn’t take it too seriously until a few years ago. My advice for anyone wanting to try art or thinks it too hard for them would be “ Just be patient!” Trust me it takes a lot of layers and erasing to get the final result. I post my art and modeling opportunities on my social media [ig:@elaynajazelle] Please message me for any collaborations or opportunities!

Erica was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. She had an early love of art and attended university at UAA, where she majored in nursing. In 2010, Erica and her family moved to Texas where she began work as a hospice nurse. In Texas, she attended her first Painting With A Twist class and was hooked! Practicing at home in her garage, she developed her love of painting. She moved with her husband and 3 daughters to Mesa in 2017. She owns 2 rescue mutts and 2 boston terriers. Her hobbies are naps, true crime and spending time with friends. She loves Arizona and especially enjoys the hot weather, beautiful sunsets, the cacti, and views of the Superstitions.

Hi, I’m Sarah, and I am a self-taught artist, born and raised in Arizona! I have lived in Tucson, Flagstaff, Mesa, Chandler, and currently call Tempe home. I love to paint and encourage others! My gifts include my particularly bubbly personality and ability to brighten a room. My passion is rooted in art and helping others make art, even when they think they can’t do it. I am a firm believer that anybody can paint if they want to, and once you experience the meditative element of painting, it might change your life forever like it did mine!
