Something about Porcelain Painting: 
Porcelain Painting is an ancient Art
which originated in China.

It is also referred to as China Painting, mineral or Overglaze painting.  This Art found its way to the Western world through Marco Polo in the 13th. Century. In the late 1800’s it began to flourish in America along the East Coast. This period produced the antiques we see to day. Porcelain painting requires many firings to achieve the desired depth of color. 

Her love for Africa and the rekindled global interest for the preservation of endangered species are the fuel for her desire to express this on Porcelain
