Our Artists

Melissa Q.

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! :)

My name is Jewel I'm a graduate student at Arizona State University studying graphic design. I am an artist/designer with a deep love of printmaking. While working at Painting with a twist I have seen that the spirit of creativity and expression doesn't only live in the skilled artist but people who are willing to try, fail and try again. It makes me happy to see people having fun and enjoy painting regardless of skill level.
Karmen N.

Karmen N.

My name is Karmen, I am 22 and born and raised in my beautiful homeland of sunny Arizona. From age four I always had a pencil in my hand. Pencil portraits were my first love but I am passionate about anything art and dabble in it all. From sketching, painting, and photography, to theater, dance and creative writing. Outside of PWAT, I enjoy acting, performing, and doing voiceovers. I enjoy working at PWAT because I am able to exercise my passion for art and assist others in unleashing their creativity!
Paige R

Paige R

Paige got her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education at Western Michigan University. She decided to move 2,000 miles to live in Tempe and become a public art teacher for junior high students. With all of the challenges this age group brings, she loves their quirky personalities as her high energy can keep up with them. She finds joy in making a difference in the lives of children, getting them excited about art and their education as a whole. While Paige has been working in public schools for five+ years, she is also a professional artist who creates colorful acrylic and oil paintings. She can create anything, but her favorite is to focus on painting faces. Her individual style is mixed with realistic portraits and street art, with a pop culture reference. Any work she creates is for sale, but Paige loves to take requests and create commissions. She loves creating a one-of-a-kind art pieces that will be forever special to her customers. If you would like to check out her artwork, go to her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/paigereesor. Don't forget to Like it!

Anastasia F.

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!

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!
