    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. 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.

    Little by little, things got more normal and we continue working with the people from Novica, who have always been there for me, standing with me and valuing my designs from the very beginning. I hope to continue offering them the best of me — not only today but always.

      Very pretty, but seems cheaply made. It's plastic, and when you're close up, you can tell. I ordered 3 things when I placed my order for this mirror. The other 2 items came within days - sooner than I expected. This, however, kept saying "processing" for weeks. I finally called Overstock to inquire about the delivery status, and they told me it was made upon order and would ship within 10 days of being made. Well, it had been about 2 weeks already when I called, AND, I assumed "Overstock" meant it was IN stock. Anyway, it finally shipped within a couple of days after my phone call. Its, just o.k. I wouldn't order this item again though.

      Not as hefty as another similar Novica mirror I'd purchased in the past. This one is nearly flat against the wall. Still very nice.

    • Different but a bit too shiny for me
      Verified Purchase

      I did not expect the background to be a high gloss shine. It is a unique mirror which caught my attention, and I am keeping it. I would have preferred less shine.

      Wasn't sure exactly what I was getting, but the mirror is beautiful. The frame is flat glass That's been painted. The edges are raised about 1/2". The painted mirror pieces look inset. I have this mirror in my front hallway over a cabinet. Everyone who comes into the house stops, looks and raves about the mirror. They all want to know where I got it. It has a folk art look.
