PaintsVille Arts Hub opening soon in Paynesville!MEET THE PAINTSVILLE FAMILY.

This little family-owned business has come to life with the collective brains of these four people.

So, here's a little introduction into the people who are working hard behind the scenes to bring the PaintsVille Arts Hub into our community.

Karin is the managing director. Karin has been a business owner for 14 years and has worked in several different industries in both Australia and the Netherlands. Although she has recently had an extended break from work, she is now ready to bring this exciting business into our community.

Kirsten is the other director. Kirsten works as a Youth Advocacy Worker and is passionate about social inclusion and building a sense of community. In addition to her work and being a director for PaintsVille, Kirsten is also a newly elected (and youngest ever) Councillor for the East Gippsland Shire Council.

Nailz is the art guru of the family. He has been drawing ever since he could hold a pencil. Nailz studied a bachelor of Interactive Entertainment (majoring in Video Game Design and Animation), however, has been working full-time as a tattoo artist since he graduated. In his spare time, Nailz experiments with different types of art, including sketching, painting, painting warhammer, and more! Nailz will be delivering adult art classes and taking a creative lead in our business.

Hsin is Nailz's other half and is moving down to East Gippsland in order to work as the head barista in our Cafe! Hsin works full-time as a Barista and specialises in latte art. Hsin is originally from Taiwan and has been living in Melbourne for a number of years but will now call Paynesville her home!

Soon, we will introduce you to some of our wonderful art teachers!
