Hand painted ceramic tiles,

created specially for you

Custom made tiles, from designs of your own choosing, will transform the interior of your home into an elegant statement of your unique and individual taste

Hand-painted tiles of the highest quality give class to a fireplace, dress up the kitchen backsplash, or add an element of interest to the wall above the bathroom.  Tiles adapt themselves to any decorating style: country, southwest, classical, romantic, or Victorian.

With an unlimited subject matter, tiles may depict animals, birds, flowers, herbs, landscapes, still life, and much more, including abstract designs.  A single tile adds interest to a room, while a group creates a stunning arrangement.

In my work, I mainly follow the izraztsy style, highly popular in Europe, including my native land of Russia.  Special techniques and diversity of subject matter render these custom-made tiles a unique art form. 

To learn more about izraztsy tiles and the way I create them, see:

I composed this page to show you the process of making tiles to order, using an example of one of my works. This page will also introduce you to the wonderful world of art on tiles.

If you, before making the choice, want to know more about decorative tiles or about different styles of ornament, I can offer you to look at the numerous albums out of my personal Library .

 If you are interested in the history of ancient Russian ornamental tiles, you can learn about it on  Historical Outline page.

Some of the ornamental techniques that I employ have their own interesting history.  To learn more about them, see Art lessons & Pattern design page.

I value each customer's unique traits and delight in creating new collections that reflect individual interests, tastes, and experiences.  I enjoy working in cooperation with the customer who chooses every detail of tile design.
