Hand Painted China at Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe in Bemus Point

Hand Painted China

Painting Porcelain Since 1975

Today I'm featuring hand painted china by a local Chautauqua County artist, Elaine Caflisch. Elaine's first lessons were to learn how to paint china thimbles for her collection of thimbles. She especially likes to do animal portraits, flowers, and birds.  She has several items painted with flowers and birds at Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe in Bemus Point, NY.

Elaine has painted for several years for the National Osteoporosis Foundation doing their Mother's Day cards and in 2011 doing their Christmas card thank you's.

She is currently the president of the chautauqua County Society of Artists.  She is married to Philip and has two children (one married) and two horse, shih Tzu dogs and several small caged birds.  She teaches porcelain painting.

You can see her art at Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe in Bemus Point on Saturdays during the month of May and Friday and Saturday during June.  The shoppe is open from 10a until 5p.
