Meet Our Team

Dina Murphy

Dina Murphy

Owner/Instructor

I graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art long, long ago! Art is my passion, but my family is my purpose! I have 1 boy and 2 girls. They all love art… in their own way! I opened The Painters Lounge in June of 2013, and it has been such a blessing to my life. We have built such  community around art and we love and appreciate every one of you that comes through our doors! Thank you for allowing us to find the Picasso in each of you!
