I feel very proud to have been born in a family of artists. My parents dedicated their lives to the art of reverse painted glass and so my siblings and I learned from them at a very young age. I'm a curious and creative person so I've always gone beyond what I have been taught and, when I finished school, I decided to take several courses at Lima's Art Museum in order to develop new abilities and learn new things. See, I'm convinced that my true vocation is in art.

I work with simple materials such as glass, wood, plywood, ceramic, chalk, temperas and varnish among others. When I'm working with painted glass, I start by painting the design on paper and I make a copy of it so I can transfer to a type of mesh that allows me to transfer the design unto the glass, a color at a time. After sealing the glass into the wood tray, box or coaster, I apply a natural aging agent.

"One of my main goals is to make my venture grow so I can offer my family a better quality of life while keeping my parents legacy alive. That's why when I was searching for new markets, I opted to adapt my work to a sector that includes Peruvian enterprises through my own designs, which are richly underscored by Peruvian art.

"I work with simple materials such as glass, wood, plywood, ceramic, chalk, temperas and varnish among others.

"I participated in Lima's 2019 Cow Parade, which allowed me to give free reign to my creativity. My cow, of a colonial style, was chosen for exhibition at Salazar de Miraflores Park. The experience motivated me continue creating ever more, with a mission to convey the talent within me."

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
