Marcos's story

Marcos is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in handcrafted wall mirrors and decor. He would like to stock up on the materials he uses for his mirrors, such as wood, paints and bronze leaf.

Marcos has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"I am a self-taught artist and I began to work at the age of 17 at a neighbor's workshop. After only a year, I decided to venture on my own, gradually gaining renown for the beauty and quality of my work. I have been dedicated to this craft for over 35 years and to me it feels like only yesterday when I began. Woodwork makes me feel good about myself, because it's a way of preserving an aspect of Peruvian artistry."

"We ask for blessings and positive energy for you who are helping us. Sometimes we don't have the cash to invest in materials to restock the mirrors that are sold. We want to get ahead, but sometimes a person needs a hand up. Thank you so much."
