Kingston Ontario Canada
teacher, sometimes writer, prison volunteer, Roots Of Empathy classroom instructor.
I am a teacher, mother/grandmother and sometime social activist who really admires the wealth of art and craft available through Novica.
What I like most about Novica:
I have an opportunity to support artists and artisans from around the world. I especially like Novica's willingness to donate money from sales to areas like India which have been harmed by violent weather.

7 testimonials written and 13 Novica artists purchased from.
Testimonial for Chief Carver Nana Frimpong
Dear Mr. Frimpong, I gave one of your stools to my son and his fiancee. They were delighted, and I notice it each time I visit them. The wood is wonderfully carved, and I remembered to tell them its teaching story. Thank you so much. My best wishes, Marie.
Testimonial for Ketut Murdantha
Hello, Mr. Murdantha, Your carving work is beautiful and so expressive! Thank you for offering your work to people around the world on Novica. I'm from Canada. I noticed that you have carved a piece with Rama in the jungle, in a square shape. I'm thoroughly excited about receiving your Sita And Hanoman carving, which I ordered, and hope someday you will have the Rama work on the Novica site where I make purchases.
Testimonial for Alberto Torres
Estimado Sr Torres, Your paintings now hang in my home in a place of honour, which they richly deserve. Like many other purchasers, I need to say that these surpassed what I could have hoped for. Each is a jewel of colour, form and execution. Beyond that, they are moving as great art will be. Muchas gracias, Marie Lloyd, Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
Testimonial for Agung Mayun
Your love of Bali shines through the painted egg I bought. It is richly vivid and designed very masterfully. I could not be more pleased. Thank you for sharing this great talent with me. Marie Lloyd, Canada.
Testimonial for Isidoro C'cahuantico
Estimado Sr. C'cahuantico, I purchased a beautiful blanket from you last fall and admire it each time I see it. It is textile ART. The story I read of your learning to weave secretly was wonderful! Congratulations for finding a way to make your talent shine. I haven't forgotten your ponchos, muy bonita. and I'll visit your work again in the spring to buy one. Thank you for enriching my life. Hasta luego y muchas gracias, Senor. Marie.
Testimonial for Nono Supriatna
Dear Mr. Supriatna, it's time I thanked you for the beautifully rendered Guru puppet I bought last year. It is a highlight in my guest room , and beautifies it so much. Your talent has come all the way to Canada. Thank you once more. My best to you, Marie.
Testimonial for Keawpankanlaya
Dear Keawpankanlaya, I saw your overwhelmingly beautiful Thai silk pillow covers and ordered them right away. I'm so excited to help you continue this gift to humanity-Thai silk. I hope that you do continue and that your mother is well again. I see these fabrics were gifts to Buddha, and since I practice Buddhism here in Canada I will make certain the fabrics are close to my favourite Buddha statue, thus continuing a long tradition which you have allowed me to keep. Thank you, Keawpankanlaya.
