"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.

COLLECTIONS FEATURING Men's Fine Silver Bracelets
Men's Fine Silver Bracelets
Fine silver differs from sterling silver in the amount of copper used to create the material worn in jewelry and seen in home goods. Copper is a necessary element of silver jewelry, as pure silver is far too malleable and stretchy to be used in almost anything. While sterling silver is comprised of 92.5% pure silver, fine silver featured in this collection contains 95% pure silver. Find fine silver bracelets for men from uniquely skilled artisans trained to work with this rather tricky material. One of these artists in this collection has a grander goal for her work beyond masterful artistry. Thailand’s Achara and her team strive to preserve Thai and Hill tribes through their designs, Achara says, “when we learned that the hill tribe people of northern Thailand had wonderful silversmith skills, but that most of their jewelry wasn't considered very marketable, we decided we wanted to find a way to help them.” She explains, “…we could help them develop more handcrafting skills, improve their designs so they would be more appealing to the general public, and improve the quality of their work, which meant refining their centuries-old traditional methods.” Find beautiful jewelry from Achara and the many other talented artisans featured in this collection of men’s fine silver bracelets.
