Meet the TEAM: Art Instructors 


Kris Fuller

I love bold, bright colours and the best compliment I can receive is that my paint nights make people feel happy and uplifted. I want everyone to discover their 'inner artist' (and have a great time doing it!). 


I graduated from the University of Alberta with an Education/Fine Art Degree. I've sold and commissioned paintings in Puerto Rico, England, France, the USA and all over Canada. I run an art rental program for offices and take part in local gallery shows as well.  To learn more about me as a professional artist- visit my site: Kris Fuller, Okanagan Artist

Carissa Moreno

Carissa has always enjoyed drawing, painting and other forms of art. She’s upbeat, outgoing and though you won’t find her in art galleries, her family home boasts many original works. After her first Paint and Sip class she fell in love with the concept and is excited to share her creative talents. 

Carissa is also a huge animal lover (which has nothing to do with painting, but you can’t go wrong with an animal lover!). Her claim to fame as a dog groomer/trainer is ‘fancy’ cuts for Fido! And while she won’t style your hair with 123 Artful, she will walk you through a fun, creative painting.

Lisa Wright 

Lisa Wright loves painting, sewing and crafting! From Markets to Art on the Farm, Lisa has always loved creating special and unique items for people...and more..,Even her chickens have had their nails painted by Lisa and her daughter. She's crafty... level 7!  Lisa's been with 123Artful since the beginning and we are so excited to have her on the front lines now. 


She has a special love for the mini-beasts (yes, kids!) in our lives and she heads up our Picasso Paint Nights- designed for you to share a night out with a youthful artist in your life! (Ages 9-17 with an adult) AND Petite Picasso- perfect for kids parties. Lisa can't wait to paint with you soon, step by step creative fun!

I want to thank you for the gift that you gave us, the creative outlet, the laughter and your lovely energy! You just don't know how deeply you touch people! Just thought I would let you know! Peace and love, Kristi

I literally cannot draw a stick man... Carissa goes so clearly step by step, anyone can do it! I promise! LOL ~ Kim 


Thank you so much for last night! Your unique brand of humour and teaching made the evening both fun and inspiring. It has been quite a while since my friend and I have been out for any type of fun. Last night was just the ticket. ~ Shan
