Artists

Bre - 2019Bre Helms is our Senior Artist and has been with Painted Kanvas since September of 2018. She graduated from Emporia State University in the Fall of 2016 with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Graphic Design. Alongside Painted Kanvas, Bre works full time as a Merchandising Graphic Artist for Champion Apparel and Hanes Brand Inc. Bre loves teaching at our events and encourages everyone’s creative side to come out. In her free time Bre loves to hang out with her two cats, Cassie and Spencer, and take adult dance classes. If a good song comes on the playlist while she’s teaching, there’s a good chance you’ll get to see her dance moves for yourself!

 

Emma Rockey joined our team in June of 2019. She is passionate for nature, creativity and all things art related, and makes pottery at KU when she is not painting. Emma is earning her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies and minoring in Visual Arts, planning to graduate in the spring of 2020. In the future, she hopes to combine these fields to raise awareness for environmental issues by teaching permaculture. If you haven’t heard about permaculture, be sure to ask Emma next time you’re at a painting party!
