"I grew up amid looms and sheep's wool. From when I was little I have loved passing the thread through the loom...."
"I was born in a city famous tapestries of intricate techniques are our tradition. I inherited my art from my ancestors; ever since I can remember I have seen every one of my relatives weaving: great-grandparents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and brothers. On occasion my mother, Eleuteria Oscanoa Montes, helps me to design and produce my weavings, and signs her work EOM. She continues to serve as an inspiration and support.
"That is to say, I grew up amid looms and sheep's wool. From when I was little I have loved passing the thread through the loom, imagining a bedcover for my doll. As I grew up the game became an obligation - my brothers and I had to collaborate with our parents in order to complete the tasks that the handicrafts stores gave my parents. This is how I discovered my style.
"I enjoy making Cubist-style designs inspired by our folklore and everyday scenes from my village. To weave the tapestries I use sheep's wool, which I color with natural dyes such as tara, walnut, and one derived from the cochineal insect, etc. Currently I am living in the city and I am married."
Ms. Oscanoa was one of our 5 choices for Christmas gifts. Her work immediately conveys what life must be like in the Andes. The colors were cheerful and the pattern of her tapestries also reflect her culture.
I recently received the ""Picaflor of Tarma"" tapestry I purchased from Ms. Oscanoa, and what an exquisite piece of artistry it is. The colors, the material and the craftsmanship are a delight to the eye. I am so pleased with it. Everytime I enter the room where it is displayed it brings a smile to my face. Thank you Ms. Oscanoa for such a wonderful piece of work and for sharing your gift and your culture with me and with everyone else who has the pleasure of owning your artwork!
