I am Susan. I have loved art since I could color stacks of coloring books as a child. In primary school my favorite thing was art. Same with middle school and High School. I would get in trouble for not paying attention and doodling. So, off to University of WI. Madison I went to achieve my degree in textile design. Upon graduation I packed my car and moved to L.A. where I worked as a textile designer. This took me on business trips to various mills on the East Coast where I met my husband in Logan Int. Airport. He lived in Alaska! Off to Alaska I went. The culture and beauty in Alaska captured my artistic desires even more. I began teaching and painting. Now I live in Centennial Colorado with my husband and have 2 daughters and a son-in- law. I adore them all and continue to have the privilege of teaching my passion, painting. “Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” ~Scott Adams
Hi there! My name is Shawna, and I was born and raised here in Aurora. Art has always been a passion of mine, and it has been such a joy to combine it with my other passion of teaching. I am currently a senior studying elementary education at UNC.
I have the joy of meeting amazing people wherever I move and I look forward to meeting you here at The Paint Cellar!
Greetings, I’m Molly Sullivan. I am a proud Colorado native and absolutely enjoy every part of this beautiful state, but my favorite is it’s people. I live in Aurora with my husband, our three kids (2, 7, and 9). I absolutely love being able to be home with my kids through their young years. Being a mom has helped me to see the world through their curious, free-spirited, innocent eyes. To me, God is the source of beauty and we merely gaze upon it, what a wonderful gift! Let’s explore the possibilities of what beauty we can help you unlock via a fun evening together, accomplishing your own work of art, or having a wonderful conversation in good company…all at the Paint Cellar!
