I am Gioconda Padovan, a graphic designer, ceramic artist, art instructor, Spanish teacher, and creator by heart!

I am from Caracas, Venezuela happily living in Maryland, United States since 2006 with my boys and Zorro my loving dog. I discovered my love for drawing, painting, and ceramics while staying at home taking care of my kids, something that I started doing to motivate them to be artistic ended up being one of my passions: drawing!. I love plants, books and art supplies, my favorite place to be is the beach and I love nature, art museums, and traveling. Living from my heart in gratitude mode always.

I worked in many mediums, I started cutting beautiful big numbers on wood, then little wood animals that I painted, and added some paper on one side making them unique objects for decoration. Then I discovered a fascination for rubber stamps and I learned how to make my drawings into my own custom rubber stamps, in no time I was creating stamp sets with themes like "The fish town", "The pirates", "The Dutch village", and "KuraHulanda", all limited editions, hand mounted by me and some help. I used some drawings from my older son Leonardo as part of the sets. Then I started to explore the ceramic world and it's something that I am still doing where I integrate words and images creating one of a kind piece.

I do ceramics, especially plates, where I stamp my drawings combined with quotes that speak to my heart. In my creations, you will find quotes as little messages that I want to share with the world through my art. I do painting as well where I combine different techniques, it's some new territory that I am just exploring. I am always experimenting with clay, paper, colors, and drawings.
 All my creations are unique like you and me.

Welcome to my world and thanks for stopping by.
