about Lucia Jongbloed

Lucia was born and raised in Amsterdam but has made her home and life on the beautiful island of Crete. In 1997 Lucia opened the fabulous Cafe Bar Toedeledokie where you can see many examples of Lucia’s art as you enjoy a drink and a sandwich - Cafe Bar Toedeledokie is a short walk north of the harbor on Atki Koundourou in Agios Nikolaos.
However, Lucia’s real passion is her art - Lucia creates unique and exciting painted pottery, wonderfully humorous painted stones and stone sculptures, exceptional canvas art and photography. Please take a moment to enjoy Luciartshop.com. All the ceramics and pots that Lucia works with are hand-crafted on Crete by Yiannis - a superbly talented local potter. All finished items are unique and lovingly crafted by Lucia with her love for flowing color and intricate design, all the ceramics are beautifully finished in vibrant colors that will never fade.
Lucia is also an exceptionally talented photo artist. Her inspirations are the marvels of nature, breathtaking landscapes and the wonderful people of Crete going about their daily lives. Lucia’s photos are printed on high quality on canvas with fading edges so they will easily fit with the color scheme of your home.
Lucia says: “Painting, pottery and photographing landscapes and people have always been my favorite things to do. I am inspired from nature and people in their everyday lives and so much more. Then comes the wonderful process of creating the art – the vision, the excitement and then, the finished work.”

Here I have created a short video of me preparing and painting some pots to share my work with you. I
hope you enjoy!
