Becki Novak, loves to make people smile with her hand-painted pottery.
Whether it is a custom-painted house platter, a whimsical cakeplate
or a large round Santa platter for Christmas, she loves to see the positive
reactions from her buyers. Becki attended Texas Tech University as an
elementary education/art major working mostly with the intent to be
an art teacher. After graduating from college, she worked in Dallas
as an art specialist with grades 3 - 6 . After 8 years of teaching and
the arrival of her first child, Becki decided to leave the teaching
profession to be at home. She began taking watercolor lessons from an
architect for 8 years in Dallas which explains her love of painting
to do detail on the homes from every shadow, to light fixtures, down
to every single brick. I want it to look like a photo.. not just a rendering."
After her kids
started school, Becki worked with the school to set up after school
art classes, art competitions, and art awareness programs. She also
did murals for the district and her church. After donating a piece of
pottery for her son's auction at school, she realized the fun she could
have with this media. She bought her kiln, and off she went! Whatever you want created,
she can customize or personalize anything from platters to salt and
pepper shakers, from pitchers to cookie jars, or teapots to tiles."
