Flo-Elle grew up with very artistic parents, Father who was a Printer, and Graphic Artist, Mother who was a seamstress and was a China Painted.
Flo-Elle attended the Kootenay School of Art, excelling in Life Drawing, Pottery, and Anatomy. After working in and teaching Portrait Painting, Pottery, Oil Painting, and Water Colors, Flo-Elle took courses in China Painting from her Mother, and International China painters, in the US and Canada. This is the only medium that she paints in.
Using white porcelain as her canvas, Flo-Elle hand paints, with Underglaze Paint, an original, and functional piece. Sometimes done in the traditional China Painting style, more often in a modern and her individually creative style. Each piece is fired at 1400 degrees making the painting permanent and a collectively, unique piece of art.
Most of the white Porcelain Flo-Elle uses is collected from Thrift shops, and Consignment shops. Giving the plain white porcelain an new life. Gifts for you or another.
