The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist
Instructor guides you step-by-step through the featured painting in about two hours. If you’re feeling creative, change the colors to suit your décor or go completely rogue. We provide all the painting supplies: a 16”x20” canvas, acrylic paint, brushes, smock, music, and a good time. No experience required!
Come out early to enjoy lunch or dinner before we get started, just let them know you’re with Paint Nite. Secure your seats 45 minutes before start time, especially if part of a large group. Food and drinks are available for purchase from the venue and NOT included in the ticket price. Outside food and drink are not allowed - NO BYOB.
Events are for adults, 21+ only.

I was born into an artistic family in Salt Lake City, Utah, and have been drawing from the moment I could pick up a crayon. I have an adventurous spirit, always ready to see and learn something new, and as such I have moved all around the country. After high school, I attended the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington where I was awarded the Trustee’s and an Art Departmental Scholarship. I transferred to the University of Utah where I received my BFA in Painting and Drawing in 2002. After graduation, I worked locally in floral design and architectural drafting while spending my free time creating narrative figurative paintings in oil. Never knowing when a fleeting thought or inspiration will strike, I always carry a sketchbook to jot down notes, ideas and sketches. The smallest details often are the seeds of inspiration for my figurative oil paintings, full of symbolism, which are meant to tell a story. My work has been featured in the Salt Lake City Weekly and in the Salt Lake Tribune. In 2008, I moved to Boston to attend the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and in 2010 received a MFA with an emphasis in 2-Dimensional Art. Also in 2010 while at MassArt, I won the George Nick Prize for my Thesis Exhibition work. I have exhibited my paintings in galleries in Tacoma, Salt Lake City, and Boston. Besides teaching for Paint Nite, I am also an adjunct instructor at a local college where I teach drawing and sculpture courses. I love to teach, and it comes maybe only second to my love for painting. The most rewarding and inspiring part of teaching is when one of my students makes a breakthrough artistically. I am absolutely thrilled to be with Paint Nite, and enthusiastic about teaching people eager to paint and expand their artistic skill and creativity. Don’t forget that everyone has to start somewhere and there is an artist in all of us that just needs to be harnessed! I’m outgoing and super excited! This zest for art has a tendency to be contagious! So, pick up your drink, get your creative juices flowing and let’s get ready to have some fun!
