"Woodwork makes me feel good about myself because it means it's a way of preserving an aspect of Peruvian artistry...."
Jose Marcos Luzalde Rosales was born on the 19th of March, 1952. He is a self-taught artist who began to work at the age of 17 at a neighbor's workshop. After only a year, Marcos decided to take the plunge and venture on his own, gradually gaining renown for the beauty and quality of his work.
He is the proud father of five children – two of his daughters have become his eager students as they follow him down this artistic path. He teaches them everything, from designing a piece to carving and applying the right finish.
To Luzalde, his craft is like a hobby; he's been dedicated to it for over 35 years and to him it feels like only yesterday when he began. "Woodwork makes me feel good about myself because it means it's a way of preserving an aspect of Peruvian artistry," confides the carver. Having met and surpassed all the challenges that establishing his own workshop implied, Luzalde is confident that his work will please Novica customers' expectations.

Marcos, I purchased 2 of the fleur de lis mirrors. They arrived 10 minutes ago. I hung them up and they are absolutely stunning. Thank you for the beautiful pieces of art.
I received the beautiful Emerald Stars mirror recently. It was my treat to myself after moving into a new apartment.
