Our Tempe, AZ Painting with a Twist Artists

Anastasia F.

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!

Ashya

Ashya

Hello, my name is Ashya! I am an artist from Tempe/Phoenix. I graduated from New School for the Arts, & was a student of the Tim Rees Atelier for a year. My art consists of nature and spirituality through the lens of surreal abstractions, with inspiration taken from Ernst Haeckel, Heironymous Bosch, John Singer Sargent, and H.R. Giger to name a few. I work mostly in oil, acrylic and ink, but love experimenting with new mediums! You can find my art page on Instagram, @empathyg0d. I hope to share some positive energy with you all soon!

Bethany

Hi, I'm Bethany! I'm originally from Washington state but have lived in Arizona since 2010. I'm currently dual majoring in Fine Arts and Art History at ASU. I have plans to further my education in the field of anthropology. My art consists of mythical and ancient themes, landscapes, and portraiture. I work in all sorts of mediums: acrylic paints, graphite, printmaking, oil paints, colored pencil, and I even crochet. Aside from school and art, in my free time I read, drum, and plan my next travel adventure. I have traveled to Mexico, England, Scottland, and France. I post my artwork to my Instagram: @artist_bethanyshier. Feel free to DM or email me for commissions, questions or anything else! Happy painting!

Cora

Cora

Hello, my name is Cora, and I'm an artist from the Greater Detroit, Michigan area. There, I studied my associates in Graphic Design, I moved to Phoenix to finish my Bachelor's of Fine Arts at Arizona State University. I love painting with all mediums, my favorites being oil and watercolor. My artwork generally features strong feminist figures I feel everyone can admire, as well as women from different ethnic backgrounds. I worked as a muralist assistant for 3 years before I moved to Arizona, for a Detroit artist known as Phybr. We traveled to paint murals, and for the last year, I have been working on my own murals. You can find my murals and paintings on my Instagram oni.cora. I look forward to creating with you!

Emilee

Hello, I’m Em! I have spent my life expressing myself through all art forms from painting to dance to theatre to poetry! I taught paint and sip classes at a small family owned studio in Iowa for two years before moving to the Phoenix metro area with my boyfriend and our dog, Nova. I plan on finishing my associates online before double majoring in dance education or communications at ASU. When I’m not painting at the studio, I’m either doing homework or teaching kickboxing part-time!

Laine

Laine

“Hey there, my name is Laine! I am a local Arizona artist, having called Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff my home over the years. I am primarily a digital artist, I started out as a child in MS Paint: drawing sonic fan art to post on the neopets forums. Since then I have gone on to study Visual Communications at Northern Arizona University, graduating with a bachelor's degree in May of 2019. Much of my art is illustrative and character-driven. I love working with bright colors, bold lines, and exaggerated cartoonish forms. Helping empower people to tap into their inherent creativity is a new & exciting adventure for me, but I can't think of a better way to bring happiness to people through art! If you want to check out some of my work, or see what I'm up to, follow me across social media @cactiforsale. Cheers!

Nir

Nir

Israeli born artist who spent his formative years in Venezuela before moving to the United States at age 32. In 1995 Nir received a Bachelor of Law from the Universidad Santa Maria in Caracas, Venezuela, where he founded the Nir Katularu and Estrella Gabizon law firm before completing his law degree. While practicing law, Nir established a successful restaurant business by opening Picasso’s restaurant which he managed until his departure in 2003. The door opened to Nir’s artistic voice in 2004 shortly after his arrival in America. He took classes in ceramics and glass fusion at Paradise Valley Community College and developed a collectorship early on in his artistic journey. In 2015 Nir’s interest in abstract expression took hold, leading him to the Scottsdale Artists School where he enrolled in Master Artist Marianne Mitchell’s workshop - Opening the Realm of Abstraction. Nir has continued his studies with Marianne Mitchell in her Artist Mastery programs, and is now a professional abstract fine artist. In the summer of 2019 Nir founded the Nir Art Studio + Gallery in Fountain Hills, Arizona.
