Hand embroidered handbags and decor accents in The Andes
"My inspiration comes from nature, from the pure mountain air and the landscapes where animals live free in perfect harmony with their surroundings. All this fills me with joy.""I was born in 1963 in the beautiful province of Huancavelica. Eventually, I moved to Ayacucho, the 'Emerald of the Andes.'
"I consider myself an honest and enterprising woman with vision and a strong desire to get ahead. I'm a good team member and I'm a very hard worker.
"I've always been surrounded by fabrics, threads and yarns. My mother was a wonderful teacher and she taught me to weave and embroider. She loved designs that are colorful and bright, and I inherited this preference. I've always wanted to work in designing and embroidering utilitarian accessories filled with color.
"To create my designs, it has been essential to use a traditional, rustic technique, and weaving, sewing and embroidery are fundamental to this style.
"I tool a number of courses sponsored by the state government that helped me perfect my art, but I learned the most important skills from my mother, who gave me solid knowledge that I still rely upon.
"I especially enjoy the infinite possibilities this art gives me to innovate. It lets me dream and depict the most ideal dream images in my designs. I love Huancavelica and Ayacucho, and try to share their landscapes and quiet peace.
"My inspiration comes from nature, from the pure mountain air and the landscapes where animals live free in perfect harmony with their surroundings. All this fills me with joy and motivates me to continue crafting and perfecting my art. I hope to share this life and our colors with the world through my work."
