Before you read on, I would like to point out that no watermarks (the print Fine Art America) will not appear on any of your prints; they are on here for security reasons only.

Born in Montreal, Canada, but now a resident and married for the last 33 years to an Italian, or rather, a Sicilian, and living on the beautiful island of Sicily for the last 34 years.

After starting to paint on porcelain as a hobby and then going on to doing a 4 year course and getting a “Master's in the Fine Art of China Painting” specializing in impressionism on porcelain, I decided I wanted to do something that represented the country that I have been living in for the last 34 years. I decided I wanted to use what our local volcano Etna produces; and that being lava rock. I began to esperiment and after I learnt how to put a ceramic base on the lava rock I began to apply my porcelain knowledge to the ceramic and came up with new and different techniques. I am constantly experimenting and have also begun to teach these techniques to people interested in painting on this lava rock.

Besides paintings on lava rock, I have begun to design and make lamps and furniture accessories out of lava rock. You can find these interior desing pieces on my FB page “Art and Design on Lava Rock by Kathleen Pio.” Look for me on Twitter and Google plus as well.

Here on FAA I have included also paintings that I do (on the side) in oil, or acrylics or watercolor. I believe that learning other mediums helps to improve ones chosen medium. I also like to take pictures and have included them on my profile because I think they make pretty greeting cards or posters, or whatever you choose.

If you want to know more about my art please feel free to e-mail me and I will be more than glad to answer your questions.
