A year after opening Painting with a Twist in Ferndale, artist and architect, Michelle Lewis says her business is moving in the right direction; she has sold out enough party events to expand her services. The business is a franchise where groups meet in a studio to paint pictures together; adult participants may bring wine to the two- to three-hour session.
“The first year has flown by,” Lewis said. “We have outdone my initial goals and our customer base and grown tremendously. Plus, we’ve touched so many people’s lives in such a positive way.”
