Claire & Megan
Claire Giroux-Williams and Megan Winward met in 2015 when they were both working as artists at the Burlington Paint & Sip Studio. Together they shared many fantastic memories helping people learn to love painting (and sipping). In 2017 when the studio came up for sale, Megan texted Claire and said “hey, I want to buy the studio… but I think the two of us should do it together…”. That text got the ball rolling and the two officially purchased the Burlington Paint & Sip Studio on January 14, 2019. They are thrilled to bring the studio to local ownership, and to provide the best night out in Burlington!
Bailey quit her desk job to be an artist and has never been happier. When she’s not having a blast painting with you all, she also loves charcoal drawings, polymer clay sculpture, origami, and any other art you can teach her. This friendly Hufflepuff can’t wait to meet you!
Claire was born and raised in SC and moved to Vermont in 2007. Joining the Paint and Sip family in August 2015 brought her back to her artistic roots. Claire received her BA in Studio Art with an emphasis in painting back in 1997 from Columbia College of SC, and since has been working in higher education and non-profit development in her full-time life. She loves the time she spends at the studio helping people develop their painting skills. When not at work you will often find Claire having a cocktail with friends, hanging with her wife and dogs, and giving much unsolicited advice to anyone who will listen.
Faith is a colorful soul, who enjoys painting landscapes, as much as being in nature. She’s a stay at home mother of a beautiful one year old daughter who is her inspiration in life itself.
Megan is a chaos coordinator at a childcare center by day and an artist by night. She loves dogs, being outside, and painting of course! The thing she loves the most about BPS is seeing all the different styles of art that our guests create.
