"I was born in San Pedro de las Cajas, moved to Huancayo when I was 14 years, and entered the wonderful world of textiles just by watching my parents – I was fascinated! I learned from them gradually, and I set up my own workshop when I felt ready.
"I describe my art like I do my feelings – that is, I weave how I feel when I'm designing, and I use colors and different types of weaves to convey how I feel, the happiness in my heart. My motivation comes from my deep love towards this art, to what I do, and you can see it through the dedication and effort I put into every piece.
"The greatest challenge I've had to face is actually ongoing: I'm determined to always aim for the best, whether it is as a person, a worker or a team leader.
"To Novica clients all I can say is thank you, and God bless you."
