Not everyone can be Picasso, but everyone can learn to paint at Picasso’s Grapevine in downtown Clarkston. Not only that but customers of the business that opened in June 2014 can choose from hundreds of classical, contemporary and other famous paintings to replicate. Owner Leanna Haun has a financial and IT background and has served as corporate controller and business systems analyst. But years spent in the corporate word turned into a career that is a labor of love for Haun, a Davisburg resident.
“I have been a closet artist my whole life and I wasn’t looking to start a new business,” Haun said. “But when I found out about this business model I believed that this was truly the new career for me.”
