My name is Jessica Spadaccino. I love art, bunnies, and chocolate. From the time I was in kindergarten I tried to sell my gorgeous works of art (scribbles on paper) to my neighbors. My mom had to tell me that she was so impressed that she wanted to keep them all to herself. Thankfully she never discouraged my enthusiasm for the arts and continued to develop my talent. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art from Moore College of Art and Design. I enjoy working in oils and painting architectural landscapes.
My name is Phillip McLaughlin and I have been very passionate about art my whole life. I am originally a self taught artist and continued pursuing studying fine arts at the Barnes Foundation for 5 years. I am also very passionate about skateboarding, music, traveling, eating food, and being outside. Hope to see you at PWAT!
My name is Maura Kernaghan. I'm an adventure seeker, I love trying new things; my most recent have been cliff jumping, rock climbing, and zip lining. I'm an avid runner and have completed many races. In January 2017 I'm going to be running my first full marathon. I'm the youngest child of 5, and have 8 awesome nieces and nephews. I'm the biggest nerd when it comes to Harry Potter and Disney. I can also recite the alphabet backwards in less than 10 seconds. I consider myself outgoing, friendly, and humorous-but mainly I love to have a good time, and live life to the fullest.
My name is Marlene! I am a mother of 4, and a grandmother of one, soon to be 3. I have a Bachelor's Degree from Maryland Institute College of Art. I was an Art Director for 10 years at Martin F. Weber Co. working with Bob Ross merchandise, and all of the television artists of channel 12 before cable TV. I enjoy painting children's murals the most, and when I'm not painting, I love being on the water. I enjoy fishing and spending time at the beach.
My name is Brittney. Art has always been a passion of mine, along with music and photography. One of my goals in life is to travel and photograph the world. I try to see the beauty in everything, and try to fine a way to help others see that beauty as well.
My name is Jeanne O’Shell. I majored in Painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and was commencment speaker of the Undergraduate Class. Aside from working at PWAT, I teach drawing to all ages at Abington Art Center. I feel very lucky to teach art to so many people and help them experience the joy of painting. In addition to painting, I love watching stand up comedy, long jogs, grilled cheese and dogs.
My name is Myia Hawthorne and I am the mommy of one awesome kid. I have my bachelors of fine arts in Graphic and Interactive Design from Temple University. There is something that is so satisfying when paint glides across an empty canvas and transforms into a work of art, which lasts a lifetime. I love taking part in that transformation! I also love listening to music, cooking & watching movies in my free time.
