Vernicia Respres: Artist, Art Instructor, Designer and Creative Director

Hi! My name is Vernicia, and I am the owner of Brushed Studios.  My mission in life is to share the benefits of art and creativity with as many people as I can.  I have taught hundreds of art classes to guests all over the world and I truly believe that self-expression is a critical component of self-care. In 2018, I opened our first BRUSHED  location in order to create a safe, beautiful and luxurious face for guests to learn, shop, engage in the arts & host private events. I take pride in adding a "touch of class and sass" to the paint industry by doing things my own way.

Watch Me Teach A Virtual Class





We take creativity seriously!  As a self taught artist and long time marketer, I understand that customers are often nervous when taking on a new activity. 

We are here to make sure that our classes are fun, engaging and everyone walks away with a smile (or at least a grin).  Brushed Art Classes = Selfcare Made Simple!

I personally ensure that every art piece we offer is a reflection of our customers and their needs.  Learn more about our current rates and booking info.

Pivot, Pivot, Pivot! The world is evolving at the speed of light - and so are we!  Just like everyone else in the business world, we were just humming along in our little studio in Mableton Ga, and then the pandemic hit.  Suddenly we had to make some big decisions in order to survive.  Within a few weeks of the pandemic starting, we decided to take our fun in-person art classes virtual, and a few weeks after that - we integrated nationwide shipping into our business model.  The rest is HERstory!  We have been blessed to work with thousands of individuals, fortune 500 companies and prestigious organizations all over the world.  

Next on our list?  We are hope to step into and conquer more areas in the creative world - focusing on fine art & hand-made wearable art, gifts and home goods.





Many of our wonderful customers ask about our background, the owner and how BRUSHED Studios is surviving the pandemic.  Check out these great articles and interviews to learn more about us!
