Javier’s a local Miami artist that enjoys working with his hands and making beautiful things. He specializes in finding, cutting, sanding and the illustrating on slabs of wood. The warmth and organic feel he gets from using a canvas with life is something he finds exhilarating. Javier says: “Nature is already a work of art. What better way to expand on that perfection and make something truly unique to the eye. I make every piece myself and they range from large to small, custom coasters to illustrations.”

I was born and raised in the countryside. Walking on roads that hung from the mountains, I found myself wanting to do something with that immensity. Moving forward in my life, I got to know the life of the neighborhoods and the cities, and I later ventured to other squares of the world. So far, I have been a teacher, a housewife, a freelance journalist, an amateur actress, an artist’s manager, a producer, and a radio host. I have rescued some thirty strays’ cats and dogs, I have written, I have published books, and I have professionally exercised the readings of the Marseille Tarot.

Migdalia’s doll designs explore the intersection where femininity and independence meet.
Growing up as an itty bitty Migdalia, strong woman figures like pinups and wonder woman really made an impression on me. I was fascinated by their look, taken by their beauty, and empowered by their fierceness! It’s no surprise that my childhood doodles on paper plates were of the almighty woman.
