~ABOUT THE ARTIST
Amy Lakides, 90, famed porcelain painter
died in February, 2009.
Mrs. Lakides moved to Atlanta at the urging of a couple who’d purchased some of her artwork while attending a convention in Australia. Her reputation in the art world was already established, thanks to shows she’d headlined in New Zealand, England, the United States and elsewhere.
She had many of her works of art featured in magzines.Besides porcelain, AMY Lakides painted designs on silk, murals, floors and furniture. Admirers say her decorative style and technique was natural, steeped in realism. When she painted a rose she painted would look like a rose, even down to the rose hip.
Mrs. Lakides was a past president of the Atlanta Porcelain Art Association as well as the Georgia Porcelain Art Teachers.
She held international posts as well,
among them the presidency of the Western Australia Guild of Porcelain Artists.
In 1991, Mrs. Lakides, along with dozens
of others, founded Australians Within Atlanta, a social group to connect natives of Australia in the city.
Survivors include a son, Anthony Lakides of Stockholm, Sweden, and one granddaughter
