                                        Many people struggle to connect but for Alex, connectivity comes easy through expression in art. Paintbrush or pencil, Alex is able to bring his thoughts to life and through doing so has recognized the importance in embracing creative expression. Being a late bloomer, Alex's passion for the arts did not come into full effect until his time studying at Nassau Community College, where one art class was enough to seal the deal. Now working as a student aid in the Nassau Community Art Department he is able to fully submerge himself into his preferred environment. As coordinator of the Art Club, Alex finds satisfaction in encouraging students to embrace their passion and get involved on campus. He wishes to bring that same passion and support to Muse in order to get people out of their shells and onto the canvas.

                                        Jessica grew up in Connecticut and received her Bachelors of Fine Art at the University of Hartford's Art School in 2008. From a young age she showed an interest in drawing. She would doodle the cartoons she watched on TV and began private art classes at the age of 9 in her hometown. She later won a 2 year scholarship for a program with The Art Instruction Schools as a young teen. Through that program she was able to learn about different mediums, techniques and received feedback from professional artists. Later, while studying illustration at The Hartford Art School she was ecstatic to win a spot where she traveled to Sicily for a 2 week long painting class. She met her husband during her time studying art in West Hartford and relocated to his hometown in Long Island. She enjoys working in pencil, color pencil and acrylic paint. She loves capturing the essence of someone in a pencil portrait and creating landscapes and more in her paintings. Some of her other passions include fitness, nature, humanism, science and learning new things. She is so excited to be sharing her passion of art and to be able to introduce others to the exciting world of paint.

                                        Alexis always found solace and joy through art as a child - throughout high school and college it always remained a passion. She took fine art classes in Garden City at the Church in the Garden during her adolescence and she went on to minor in studio art throughout her undergraduate career at Molloy College. During this past year, she was able to participate in the contemporary-art community for a brief period during her master's degree program in Florence, Italy in 2015. She loves how art is an intrinsic reflection of personality, culture, and oneself and believes everyone has a unique ability to produce something beyond their expectation and looks forward to bringing out the creativity in everyone who joins a Muse Paintbar session!

                                        At the ripe old age of just-born, Amanda decided she would spend the rest of her existence procrastinating important duties by doodling. Little did she know that this would be the best bad decision of her life! Amanda's avoidance of schoolwork and sleep allowed her to accumulate countless hours of practice that would come to form a pretty dang cool portfolio. While ignoring her high-school teachers, she obsessed over faces, hands, and feet which aged into her specialty - portraits. While Amanda did not choose a traditional future for herself, she can proudly say that she is a partner and owner of a digital marketing company, a seasoned painting instructor, and is regularly commissioned for portraits across a broad range of media.
