Elany Prusa's Profile
I am the tile artist for our small family tile business for 30 years. After graduating with my Art Degree from Univ of AZ in 1972, I became a restless nomad and traveled the world for several years - going overland from London to India and back! Those "hands-on" educational experiences both inspired me and helped shape my attitude towards life. I love creating new designs. I especially like developing the color schemes which take 10 - 12 kiln firings per design before I have perfected them.
I live on 5 acres on a dirt road in the old Gold Mining town of Rough and Ready up in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of Northern California amongst tall pine trees, several ponds, chickens, a dog, cat and 2 parakeets. Native wildlife frequent the area as well providing constant inspiration and joy to my life. I feel lucky to have been able to live this lifestyle and raise our children in this natural environment…
