About Kathleen Pio

Born in Montreal, Canada, but now a resident and married since 1979 to an Italian from Sicily, 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; nothing other than lava rock. I began to experiment and after I learnt on my own 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. This technique came to the interest of a museum who has bought one of my pieces and it is now on permanent display. 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 design 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. Lately, I am really getting into watercolors and think that it might become a very important medium to me. 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 to make out of them.

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.

I would also 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.
