I am experimental, self-taught and intuitive ...

My name is Ania Lolve. I was born in Quintana Roo Mexico, at 7 months on July 17, 1981. I'm an artist since I was a child. The school has given me my family and life; we had a decoration business, and there I learned to work upholstery and design for 17 years. At 17 years I was the mother of 3 chicks and happy but 7 years later was divorced and without custody of my children. I work with Aldo Flores Salón de los Aztecas in Mexico City as part of a cultural alternative movement rescuing public spaces, which are a focus of crime and cultural poverty, using art as a means of rescue. So I rediscover myself with art and dedicate myself to bend wire and understand how much is done when the knowledge is shared among the community, how strong and transformative creativity can be. 

That's why I created @PorMisJoyas that is a project that provides support and tools to anyone who wants to learn folk art.
