The Culture Creative Hub is assembling its first steps towards a brighter future for the craftsmanship world and the experimental handcrafted works of art taking shape in the artistic atelier are only the beginning.

Her work is located at Stand 12 and is inspired by the nature that surrounds her: rocks, branches, layers, vegetation, landscapes.
