This is my third time purchasing from here. First two times were for gifts, and this time was for my own decorative pleasure. True quality and love are put into making these items. Shipping to the US is quick, I am beyond satisfied. A++

About

A ball? No, it's a planet with trees, houses and colorful birds.

Although I had been thinking about it for some time, I really decided to open my shop when I knew I had lost my job. What until then has just been a hobby became a project with great enthusiasm. That happened in 2008. Now, a few years have passed, I fondly remember my first sale and the first congratulations words for my work. This gave me a lot of encouragement to keep going.

I love color and playing with it. Felt, my favorite material, becomes a spectacularly colored plasticine. I like going for a relaxing walk, taking photos of the trees and admiring buildings. I like illustrations and comics and I love films.
Yes, Inspiration comes when I look at the world around me and let my imagination fly.
Everything starts with a drawing.
When an idea comes, I have to write it down as fast as I can, a small sketch, a phrase, something not to forget it. I always carry a notebook, in my bag or in my car. Sometimes it has a quick development or it often watts for a few weeks. Maybe I try it later, until I get something that really satisfies me.

I have a world map where I mark the places where my creations travel. I know I’m never going to go to most of those places, that´s why I like to look for images of the countries where they have gone. I like knowing that my work is so far away. This is fascinating for me.
I get so happy when they arrive ay their destination and people tell me that they have smiled when they see them.
Thank you!
