  1. How totally unique. It just shows that creativity can take many forms. You build on what you know. With her family’s background in carpet making it makes sense that she would build on that. Her work is beautiful and I am assuming from the size of her pieces she must be successful.

    • I believe she is very successful and I wish I could read her comments in her language. She is clearly imbued with the family’s artistic history, and her work is wonderful.
