“I take great pride in the quality of my artwork in porcelain and stoneware ceramic forms. After teaching art classes and creating clay projects for over 25 years, I’ve recently crossed over into a new focus – striving to produce purposeful, detailed, one of a kind works. The body of Taino Design pieces in this exhibit at the LAGSTEIN GALLERY were created to honor part of my family culture. Picasso, Haring, and others have influenced my theory of lines and color. My artwork has evolved and continues to change with life experiences.”
