Vin Gogh’s Very Own Modern Artists

Shea Stiles has been a part of the ‘Paint and Sip’ world since Vin Gogh’s doors opened in 2014. For Shea, it was love at first sight. She started as an instructor, and shortly after she couldn’t put her paintbrush down. Her passion for creating art was a talent passed down from her parents. Her mom was an artist, and her dad had a great eye for design. Shea’s love for art inspired her to design and paint some of the paintings you can try in our painting gallery!

Today Shea is the owner of Vin Gogh. She is a leader in Calgary’s community and is always seeking new ways to allow others to find their inner artist. She loves sharing the painting experience with her customers because it creates a fun and relaxing environment. The energy is contagious, and she finds it so inspiring to see customers pick up a paintbrush with a big smile on! She is passionate about providing a professional event that allows friends, co-workers and families to connect through art, fun and wine.  Painting and Pinot – who can resist?!

Suzanne

Suzanne Presinal has the best time teaching at Vin Gogh and Go-Go events. She finds the wonder in every piece that’s painted and that’s because Suzanne has an artist lens on at all times. If Suzanne isn’t working in one of her creative spaces, she has her eyes looking for her next inspiration. A keen eye for found objects, and discarded objects, she has seen beauty in the cast away objects for many years. Not only does she instruct Vin Gogh events, she takes the instructor paintings and makes things with them. Sling bags, wine bags, gift bags, book marks, are just a few items she has designed from these beautiful items.

Rebecca Kimber

Rebecca Kimber graduated from ACAD with a major in drawing. If she could have chosen a minor, it would have been painting. When Rebecca is not painting at Vin Gogh she is juggling her other various creative jobs. Teaching drawing to children and painting with seniors are some of her favourites. Rebecca enjoys helping friends and family with their own creative ventures and makes as many punny jokes along the way as she can.
