Home > About Artist & Owner

Maxine Addington, I grew up in Tualatin and have lived in Salem for 25 years. I left retail security management after 20 years to be an at home mom and built my own internet blank craft and blank books supplies stores in 1999 www.bookblanks.com and www.affordablepaperweights.com. I am re-married and a step mom to teenagers who are also my Assistants at PaintnParties! I attended a paint night in Portland always wanting to teach art again. And they asked me if I wanted to be an artist in Salem for them, I agreed, but they were unable to come to Salem, so I began my own business which I have so much fun at www.PaintnPartyOR.com
