About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Conectar con la Luz, la paz y el amor.

ABOUT ME

PLEASE DO READ THE HOME RULES BEFORE SENDING ME A REQUEST!!
I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE WHO COME TO MY HOME ONLY FOR LOOKING FREE STAYING or IN THE NAME OF CULTURAL EXCHANGE. I HAVE NO TIME. I'M ONLY INTERESTED IN MEETING AUTHENTHIC PEOPLE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THEIR DEEP THOUGHTS WITH ME.

I'm a vegetarian, a textile artist, dedicated in spiritual life, on the path of pursuing truth and happiness.

I enjoy weaving, knitting, sewing, get all ideas realized and share them out with more others.

I have a dream, that is to build or work in a self-sufficient sustainable community with indigenous people anywhere in the world, knitting, weaving or practicing embroidery with them.

PHILOSOPHY

- while other go further, I go deeper.

-Delay is waste of time, and listen to your heart always, being a doer than a talker.

-This who didn't kill you makes you stronger.

-be in peace with your past, then go as far as you can

One Amazing Thing I've Done

-Winter Hiking on/in the snow at Mountain Giant with a group of wonderful friends.

-Spend 10 days in Mexico City and many other days in other areas, great inspiring place. I'm very proud of following my own heart and breaking the lies trumped up by the medias and some persons around me.

Teach, Learn, Share

-It would be great to bring me some 100% yarns from your own country or the places you travel across, wool or bio coton, hemp, or mixed silk&wool, anything new or improved ones, a small skein will be enough.
-Share with me a piece of fabrics that you carry in memories.

-The guest will be expected to create a small useful object with fabric rugs I have for him or herself.

-Sometimes I'm not available for a talk, so be aware that don't drag me into a long conservation that if I'm working in my studio, but don't hesitate to ask if you need anything.

-Take me (us) a picture to record the moments.
