In Dec 2011,my husband's Christmas gift to me that year was to purchase everything I'd need to start painting from home, and open an online shop..
I began painting about 20 years ago for a local pottery, Marshall Pottery. They have potters who make hand turned stoneware on a potters wheel. I painted the personalized custom pieces with cobalt after the pots had dried, then they would be fired.
Everything shown is hand painted especially for you…
Personalized gifts are memorable...here you can customize the perfect piece of art to commemorate all the special events in your life.
Everyone - young and old alike, will love seeing their name incorporated into a beautiful piece of art. It shows you took the time to give them something special, something above and beyond the everyday gift.
I have loved to paint and create for as long as I can remember. I was fortunate enough to be able to do this every day for nearly a decade, working as a cobalt artist for Marshall Pottery, located in East Texas. On a daily basis, we created beautiful custom artwork on hand turned pottery stoneware for visitors from around the world.
I am so excited to be able to offer some of my creations to you now through BellaLou Art. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you find exactly what you are looking for! Please feel free to contact me about creating a custom piece for you that will coordinate with your theme or colors and I will do my very best to design something just perfect.
