About

Art that includes

In 2011 I decided to try etsy and expand my audience, on a platform where I could find those that appreciate handmade items.

The way prints usually find their way onto my etsy store is first, the creative process. Some pieces can take up to 2 months to make. And most are made with a specific artshow in mind or belong to a group of themed pieces. I like to experiment with different mediums and go through phases trying canvas, paper or even cut-out pieces.

After completing an original piece I either create a high resolution scan (if its on paper) or a super clean photo. Then I take the file and size it, using my graphic design background helps a ton when making prints. Sometimes I clean up small mistakes on pieces but i try not to change them very much from the original.

Lastly comes the actual printing and mailing! Printing can strangely be kind of tricky because I always want consistency. I find that the smaller mom and pop shops tend to be the best for my work. By far my favorite part of the process is the mailing out :) I have been getting really into the wrapping of the item. The idea that each order should be received as a present is what I like, because thats how I feel when I get something in the mail so I am experimenting more and more with how I want the package to look when its opened.

So whenever you order a piece you can know that its being sent with the greatest excitement and care! Thanks for letting me continue to do what I love!

Maritza!

    I've always loved art and in 2010 I finally said 'I'm just gonna do this'. Now I work on art pieces from my home studio that are 100% me. I love the idea of appreciating the overlooked culture, instead of trying to tame it.
