Hi, I am Marcela,
I never thought myself a creative person, but after moving to a new country from the other side of the world my life just changed drastically. With plenty of free time at the beginning I had the chance to take ceramics lessons, taught myself how to paint with acrylics and oils and how to use a sewing machine. Despite a growing family and full time job, I was able to develop my talents and got some commissions for murals and canvas paintings, as well as home furnishings.
Relocation to a new city and the birth of a son caused me to reduce my working hours and so it began…. I needed something to keep me intellectually motivated and just by chance I started making things for home, time past until, with my husband’s encouragement, I set up my Marcela’s Purse.
