**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. We five children stayed with our
aunt and uncle, and other close relatives helped look after us. We eventually
moved to Lima where we tried to go on with our lives. Our goal was to become
the best we could be and overcome life’s obstacles in memory of our parents.In
Lima, I began studying accounting while visiting workshops and helping my aunt
and uncle. At school there, I 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.
When I went to his workshop, I hadn’t the slightest idea of what would happen
or is my work would be good enough. But I thought back in time and remembered
how I was good at drawing and painting. Then I felt more secure and was happy
to learn this traditional Andean art form with techniques that have been
handed down over generations. I fell in love with this beautiful work and the
lovely designs we’re able to create. I was really impressed. Since then, I’ve
spent my whole life doing what I love most. Reverse painted glass isn’t only
my work. It’s become a way of life. I strive to do even better by studying
every detail and to become a master artisan so I can be the best I can be,
together with my family.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 fulltime to what I enjoy most. I follow a meticulous
process, carefully shaping the wood to give it a pleasing form. 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 by 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. Novica has brought about a great change in my life,
economically, of course, and personally as well, because I really value their
recognition of my work. They make me feel good about myself, and encourage me
to keep moving ahead. Shoppers post testimonials saying how happy they are
with my designs and how wonderful they find my work.
