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!

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!

Derek

Hello to you! Derek (or DC) is the name, and the brush is my game. I am East-valley born and raised. I have been resisting my creative pulse for much of my adult life, but was an avid artist growing up. I have since returned to my atistic roots and have found home again. Much of my experience is through recreational art and leisurely classes through Scottsdale Community. Painting (with a preference towards oils and portraiture) to me is the one element that I have absolute control over - and for a person who enjoys order and etiquette, the canvas is my paradise. Please join me in the ultimate end-game, just ask G.Bush Jr, Jim Carrey, Sly Stalone, and Winston Churchill - and let's paint! PS - I also very much enjoy tea and cake, thank you.

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.

Hi, I'm Savannah. I was born in Flagstaff, Arizona but I've lived in Prescott, Tucson, and now Tempe. I have been a lover of the arts since I can remember and I'm currently studying Art History at ASU. I've even done some traveling to Germany and England over the years which has ignited my interest in all forms of art. Helping someone find their passion in art like I've found mine is one of my greatest goals in life.
