Story Behind The Art :
A dream is a wish your heart makes. It doesn't come true through magic. It requires determination and hard work. My passion for art comes from the depths of my heart. It's in my DNA. From childhood, I attended all the drawing and painting classes at school. I spent many hours there and I learned well. Once I had mastered the paintbrush and colors, I loved to set my creativity free. I really enjoyed my art classes. My time was spent in school, in art workshops and at home. A short time later, disaster stuck. I lost my parents when I was still a girl and it was devastating to me. met the man who would become my husband, my best friend and life teacher. He courted me through his art. He taught me what he knew about reverse painted glass and suggested I collaborate in his workshop. I felt more secure and was happy to learn this traditional Andean art form with techniques that have been handed down over generations. I originally began to learn thanks to the influence of my husband's family. But over time, we've unified our abilities and work. Little by little, I learned to design and paint. It's so satisfying to be able to dedicate myself full time to what I enjoy most.This whole process demands incredible patience and attention to detail. The motifs are painted by hand on the reverse side of glass panes, which are inlaid onto the mirror frames, trays and decorative boxes. My designs are inspired by nature, and typical scenes from my town and region. I feel very proud of the works that I create, and I look forward to sharing them with more and more people around the world.. I hope to continue offering them the best of me — not only today but always. A dream is a wish your heart makes. It doesn't come true through magic. It requires determination and hard work. I'm proud of my designs and want to share them with even more people.
