Bio
Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney opened the first Corks N Canvas in Mandeville, Louisiana, in 2007. By 2009, they had four locations in the New Orleans area, and decided to begin franchising the concept under the name Painting with a Twist. Customers bring their own wine or other beverages and are taught step-by-step to paint one of the company's 8,500-plus copyrighted pieces of art.
