Hand Painted Wooden Sculptures
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BUSINESS?
"I come from a family of artisans," Juan says. "My father created all kinds of items carved from wood and I learned from him. At first, I helped him with simple tasks, like sanding a sculpture or applying a base coat of paint. He patiently taught me all the processes. He was my best teacher and my greatest admirer. I know he'd be proud of me today." - Sited from Kiva.org
