I travel extensively all over the world and have been fascinated by the rich blend of artistic design with traditional material in products sold at local market. It is always a great souvenir or gift to have an artistic product that is made from material that express the national culture and heritage of their countries. I draw my inspirations from such creative designers who wish to promote their local traditions through their expression in useful and artistically designed products.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I will love to talk to you.
