Mara Minuzzo's Profile
Yes that’s me in my profile picture, back when I still had my favourite blue tricycle and not too long before I figured out I wanted to be an ‘artist’ when I grew up. My parents were hardworking Italian immigrants to Canada and didn’t exactly think it was the most feasible career choice, but here I am doing it (finally) anyway. Since then, I've basically come full circle to where I am now, having studied and worked as a fashion designer and then as a product designer/maker with my woodworker husband for many years – always something creative, but not quite what my childhood self knew all along I really wanted to be doing. And although I still collaborate a little with my husband Patrick on product and furniture design, he is gradually taking over in that arena so that I can focus on my painting.
I hope you enjoy my shop - and if you'd like to see what Patrick and I come up with to…
