Story behind the art :I was born in 1965 in the Department of Chalatenango in El Salvador, I spent my childhood with my mother and six brothers and sisters in a beautiful natural setting. Because I was married, I used to have someone to play with. When I married, my husband and I joined a new artistic movement promoted by artist Fernando Llort with the style that is now known around the world. I have taught the people of La Palma techniques of symmetrical drawing, inspired by the jungle and life in the country. My husband learned to paint and create other kinds of handicrafts. I was always at his side and learned the techniques little by little. As time went by, we began to work on our own, and set up a workshop. That's where we began the process of perfecting our art and giving it to personal touch I remember our first pieces were designs on copal tree seeds. is a beautiful seed with the appropriate texture to paint on to create different kinds of works of art. 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. most of our designs I was left with the responsibility of taking the reins and confronting the situation alone At first, it was very hard because I was not accustomed to this 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 give jobs to people from our town. With more than 25 years in this field, we continue to innovate and crafting new designs. My dream is to work a lot to make our workshop grow, increase sales and be able to give jobs to more people, because I know what to blessing it is to have work. I also dream that our art might be known around the world, to exalt the creativity of my town and country. Our designs have their roots in the history of El Salvador, the history of the civil war and the dialogues for peace after such a devastating time. Each year, we celebrate this with an artisan festival in honor of peace. I invite you to see our work, each piece crafted with a lot of love and dedication.This makes our designs uniquely beautiful and beautifully made, with the style of a town that has been able to get ahead through art with a style all our own.
