"If you truly want something in life, you will do all that is within your means to get it."
"The greatest challenge I've ever faced was getting my family to understand my passion for textiles. I was born in the Macate district of the Ancash department and my parents worked in the fields. My artistic origins come from my family, my uncles worked in textiles and little by little they introduced me to this world. I love being part of this world, where I can translate materials into beautiful products.
"Getting started was difficult and my family didn't think I would make it, yet slowly but surely I managed to prove them wrong. If you truly want something in life, you will do all that is within your means to get it.
"I have achieved every goal I have set for myself and in this way I have discovered new and wonderful techniques within this grand art form.
"As for hobbies, I enjoy playing football soccer and of course everything related to this art since I like playing with colors, textiles, textures, etc.
"My work is motivated by a desire to show my art to people everywhere, from as many countries as possible! I would like my designs to transmit my experience and skills – each final piece is a proud representative of my creativity.
"My work means everything to me: it's what I love and cherish, and I love the fact that I can provide for my family thanks to it. I consider myself a happy person and every day I strive to get ahead, not only in work, but also as a person, a husband, and as a son.
"I would like to thank Novica customers for allowing us into their homes, and for getting to know Peruvian arts and crafts. They are made with inspired hands."
