At HandMen's Brown Leather Silver Bracelet from Peru
"I feel a need to express something, and this is what motivates me to paint. My canvases and monotypes show scenes of light – clean and floating like a dance of life."
Rosa Tomatis was born in Lima on August 7, 1948. She studied in a number of art workshops that were especially valuable for the function of design. Her artistic formation was achieved in the Universidad Católica, while her paintings are inclined toward the surreal and playful abstraction.
"When I was very young, my family saw my natural instinct for drawing, so they found an art teacher for me. Thus I followed this path, and I found it more and more beautiful," Tomatis says. "When I was a little girl, I loved to hear stories. But I always asked that they be in color. When they had a sad ending, I'd insist it be changed to a happy one. That was many years ago. But when I hear a sad tale, I still want to change it to have a happy ending.
"I'm a painter but as a girl I learned all about leather, as my father worked with tanners. My brother Rodolfo Tomatis is also a Novica featured artisan [with leather handbags]. I design and work with leather, and I also craft jewelry. With both, I select the very best materials. I love to mix natural elements with silver. Sometimes I give it a rustic finish; other times I like a shiny surface.
"I feel a need to express something, and this is what motivates me to paint. My canvases and monotypes show scenes of light – clean and floating like a dance of life. I'd love to be able to reach you with my work – feel that somehow my message reaches you – and share it with everyone."
Tomatis has shown her work widely thoughout Peru, the United States, Germany and Italy, and her works appear in many collections worldwide.

I am very excited to give this exquisite leather braided bracelet, ""Bold Brown"", to my nephew (child of my heart) for his 20th birthday. Thank you, in advance, for making it a wonderful day.
Dear Rosa, I want to tell you how precious was the gift of your ""Night's Path"" bracelet to my husband, Ron. We are celebrating our third wedding anniversary, and I was literally guided to the NOVICA website, and to your lovely works of art. The leather, the workmanship, and the elegance of the bracelet made him smile. He loved my telling the story of how I found you online. The way you wrapped the gift was really clever,too. He has it all saved in a box, because he is as sentimental as I am. Thank you !
I just received my bold red leather and silver bracelet and it is magnificent. I have been looking for a bracelet for a long time and this is a truly exceptional piece of work. Rosa does amazing work and I know when friends of mine see the bracelet they will want to know where I purchased it. Again just beautiful work. Jared
