Previous Artisans’ Fairs: two

What she likes best about the Fair: Promotes creativity in the community

Her products: Textiles in Alpaca. I like to work with pre-Columbian designs and like to innovate garments into more useful pieces. I get the material from the source in Peru up in the Andes mountains.

A little inspiration: I have always enjoyed working with materials: colors, textures, designs and the way they feel.
