Gregory Copploe

Gregory Copploe began his career in art graduating from UCLA with a BA in Theatre, and began painting in oil in 2001 after the passing of his father who also painted in this medium. As an homage to his father, he began his journey in oils experimenting with sky, water and the creation of faces in the clouds, creating relationships between the water, sky, and moon surrounding those faces. He had no idea that this homage to his father, would soon become a passion of his own, as he branched out into portraits, inspired by Sergei Smirnov and Modigliani.

Mr. Copploe is a gallery artist and a 4 time American Art Award Winner. He has worked in the Paint and Sip Industry since 2013 and is excited to Stir It Up with all of you.

He is also a self help author of The Art of Being Whole which can be found in print and on Audible, and is an Antique Dealer at Pacific Gallery and Antiques in Sodo.

Molly Whitson

Born and raised in Seattle, WA, Molly has always been passionate about art and painting. Opting for art classes as electives at every chance she got, she has been developing her skill since the age of 12. Her artistic inclination translated seamlessly into makeup artistry, and in 2018 she graduated MakeUp Designory in Burbank, CA from their fashion, beauty, and sfx program.

After a couple of years working in the fashion and film industry in Los Angeles, Molly moved back home to be closer to family and begin her work as a sign artist at Trader Joe’s. While working each of these jobs, she privately continued to develop her personal painting style with acrylic and oil paints. Bringing the range of skills she has learned over time and translating them to a paint-and-sip setting is an absolute delight, and she is absolutely thrilled to share her experience with you! Let’s grab a drink and get to painting!

Savannah Allen

Savannah was born in Bellevue, Washington and raised in Gig Harbor. Her introduction to art was an uncommon one. When Savannah was four years old, she was diagnosed with leukemia. With the cancer diagnosis came a new way of life. During the two years of treatment, the chemo was so intense at times that she lost the ability to stand or walk. During this time, she was gifted a professional art book by her uncle who is an artist. Savannah was able to master the drawings inside and grow her skills. Savannah also spent countless hours making ‘happy little trees’ with Bob Ross. Since then, Savannah received her education in fine arts and interior design and now creates commissioned works, original artwork inspired by Gig Harbor, and also works in product and interior design.
