Corralitos, California, USA
Fine Art / Crafts, DrawingPainting, Photography, Nature Hiking, Road Cycling, Golf, Sports, etc.
I am also an artist, passionate about all art as a collector and supporter of all artists. My family hails from Mexico and Germany -- both parents' families emigrated to the USA (father from Chihuahua, Mexico and mother from Offenbach, Germany during WW II, fleeing Hitler and the Nazis as Jewish refugees). I love cultural diversity and strive to celebrate it and support it in all ways. Art, Nature, Photography and Athletics inspire me, but especially viewing all artisans crafts!
What I like most about Novica:
Wonderful opportunity to acquire high quality art and crafts from exceptionally talented artisans; supporting global artisans without a "middleman" to keep costs reasonable. Providing a global network to support the artisans livelihood and provide for their families on a sustainable, on-going basis:)

Testimonial for Cerapio Vallejo
Senor Vallejo, I was very honored to purchase your place mats ("Inca Geometric Lake") that you created with talent, passion and enthusiasm. When they arrived at my home, I could not wait to open the beautifully wrapped package. When I opened the tissue and saw them, I cried...I cried because I felt so fortunate to have the opportunity to buy handmade crafts from an artisan in Peru...I cried tears of joy as I read how your success through NOVICA has enabled you to provide for your family. Nothing makes me happier than to support creative artists who now have their crafts displayed for the world to behold. The world feels a little smaller, and I feel deep gratitude for you and your beautiful talent. Thank you, Cerapio. Your place mats bring me daily joy! Lisa Palacio, Corralitos, California, USA
Testimonial for Nilda Amaro Oscanoa
Greetings, Miss Oscanoa! I am so fortunate to have in my home your exquisite wool tapestry, "Village Lane." I hung it up a couple of days ago and it has transformed the feeling of our living space. The many colors combined with the depth of your vision provides a delightful viewing experience for my partner and I, plus all the family and friends who will now get to see it! You truly are a gifted artisan -- please know in your heart how much joy your craft brings us. We feel as though we can almost breathe the high-mountain Andean air of your village. Your tapestry inspires us and always will. We look forward to seeing more of your work and we share Novica and your name with our friends and family! Thank you, kindly:-)
Testimonial for Huaman Paucar Family
To the Huaman Paucar Family, We received the most colorful vase that you created, and it now sits proudly on its own table. The designs of your traditional culture are so admired by my partner and I; we treasure your traditions and we celebrate them. We have just moved into a new home in September -- it is small, but it is becoming more joyful each time we display a new piece of art from an Andean-Peruvian artisan. I will soon be photographing your vase on its table and I will upload it on the Novica website for all to see! I wish you and your family a prosperous venture with Novica...we are so happy to have the opportunity to view and acquire your crafts. Thank you for adding joy to our home:-) Sincerely, Lisa
