"I was born on April 17, 1952. For 24 years I have dedicated myself to metalwork in the city where I got married to an able smith, from whom I learned the art of working with silver and plaques. Today we have a small family business, in which my children are also involved, and we work together with dedication, constantly developing new products.
"What inspires me on a daily basis is the endless desire to improve personally and economically. In my work I seek to recover the folklore and joy of the Andean people. My products have been exhibited in craft fairs in Spain, Colombia, Argentina, and Mexico, receiving a warm welcome and a grateful impression among the people who have appreciated my work."
