When you walk into Inspirations on Canvas, you are immediately welcomed by the great aroma that fills the air, not to mention the arrays of beautiful paintings, jewelry and hostess herself, owner and artist Kathy Pignatora. Although Inspirations On Canvas has been in Lewiston for only 9 months, Pignatora's history of painting, artistry and Lewiston go back even further. "I have been painting for the past 15 years. I used to work in Social Work and ran a foster care program, so painting was always an outlet for me." Pignatora also worked for her husband, Chiropractor Dr. Neal Pignatora and began displaying her paintings at her husband's office. When patients started to purchase the paintings, Pignatora knew that she would love to have her own storefront one day.

That opportunity came in the beginning of 2017 when a storefront space became available on Center Street in the Village of Lewiston. As Pignatora says, "The timing was right" and "couldn't imagine her storefront anywhere else." Inspirations On Canvas opened in March 2017 with a Ribbon Cutting/Grand Opening celebration. As Pignatora gets ready for her first "Small Business Saturday", she touches upon the importance of this day that calls for everyone to shop local!

"Everything about Small Business Saturday is so important! It truly is the best shopping day for unique gifts. As a consumer I have always participated in the day. Now as a business owner I can pass on the appreciation for my customers during Small Business Saturday" Pignatora said. She added that "Small Business Saturday kicks off the holidays and gives spotlight to the local businesses. It is important to remember the little folks who make up business." Inspirations On Canvas has a number of unique paintings and jewelry made by Pignatora, along with soaps, bath bombs and much more! There are gift certificates available if you are not sure what to get that special person. Pignatora is also offering "Create Your Own Flow Painting" Session, which is offered either as a one on one session or a couples session. When you come into Inspirations On Canvas, Pignatora wants customers to come in with an open mind; she makes affordable art that is fun and exciting!
