As longtime members of the Appalachian community, Heather and Wade started Paint Your Wings with a mission of delivering laughter, art, and a fun-filled evening with creativity for people all around the High Country. Enjoying active lifestyles, Heather and Wade can often be found hiking or biking their way around the Blue Ridge Mountains. At home, they are proud cat parents of Magic, Odin, Bobbi, and their angel, Pumpkin.
Heather and Wade’s motivation is to meet amazing new people while providing them with tons of fun along the way. They love not only engaging with the artist, but hearing the positive engagement between the participants as art becomes the result of a night full of fun and laughter.
Our name is dedicated to Sara Wing, Heather’s dear friend from high school. While she was here, Sara lit up every room with her positive spirit and helped others see the special gifts they brought to the world. In remembrance of Sara, Heather’s goal is to carry on Sara’s light in this world by teaching others how they can “paint their wings” and see their own unique talents through painting. When you paint with Paint Your Wings, we hope you feel Sara’s presence, joy, and light!
