    Story Behind the Art:
    'I was born in El Salvador and when I married, my husband and I joined a new artistic movement promoted by artist Fernando Llort. As time went by, we began to work on our own, and set up a workshop. Sadly, in 1999, my husband died. It was very difficult for the whole family, and I had to make a decision to continue with our artisan workshop. It wasn't easy, but, thank God, I learned fast. Today I feel very happy to be able to get ahead with my family through our handicrafts. And I'm also proud to be able to give jobs to people from our town.'
