With a Twist Balloon Creations
Airdrie, Alberta, Canada
Artistic from an early age, Jackie Ochitwa started twisting professionally in 2010 when she picked up a pump and some balloons and realized that her love of art could translate so beautifully with latex as the medium. The former radio host launched her company "With a Twist Balloon Creations" the very same year.
Jackie is a full time balloon artist specializing in fun and fresh table décor and delivery pieces. She attended her first balloon convention in 2016, winning 3rd place in the timed headband competition at Twist and Shout. She made her teaching debut the same year in Banff, Alberta at Bodyssey 2016, and was one of FLOAT's official faculty in 2017.
She recently unveiled a new line of pre-printed face balloons that allows other balloon artists to achieve stunning faces without having to fuss with the drawing.
