    Summer painted a plate for my in-law's 60th anniversary. She helped me incorporate my design ideas into a beautiful plate!

    Summer is an exemplary teacher & artist. Her fine technique & eye for detail on her porcelain artwork makes me more aware of nature and if course the finer details of my surroundings! I will continue to take her classes.

Question and answer

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Porcelain paintings can be done on porcelain, or commercial tile found at any tile store. Each painting has several layers of paint which are fired after each time you paint a layer which creates a beautiful depth to the scene, animal, fruit or flower. The original factory glazes can sometimes change color during the firing process, so test fires are done prior to eliminate surprises.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. When choosing field tile for a kitchen or bath that you intend having a mural, or single painted tiles added in, a light base color is best. Otherwise, I paint on a tile that is inserted into the field of tile chosen. All cuts, around cabinets and electrical outlets are cut prior to the tile being painted.

Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.

A. Prices vary per painting depending upon the size, and complexity of the request. The tile surface may also require special attention. Renderings, or sketches of the proposed painting are often requested which require a non-refundable deposit.
