Peruvian artist Felicita Espinoza says, 'I used to work in a shop that sold gilded frames, and I became enamored with this art form. My husband shared my interest, so together we decided to start down this artistic path. We learned through experience, and with each piece we crafted, we honed and perfected our skills. Then, in 2001, my husband passed away and I was faced with the biggest challenge in my life, supporting our family and continuing the work we started together. It took a lot of effort to learn and discover that I could actually face all of my responsibilities on my own, as well as care for my children.'
