"I work with my sisters and my brother-in-law, dividing our work roles according to our individual abilities. We use manual carpentry tools to create our designs."
"I was born in Bali on April 11, 1978. People know me as hard and humorous, but with strong principles. I like dancing, basketball, and also checking furniture quality. I'm a married woman with two children. As parents, we have to be good examples, teach our children to make right and wise decisions. Patience, peace and tranquility are things that play a role in changing my life. They actually come from our own minds, so if we always think positively, we will achieve these qualities.
"My parents have four children. When I was about eight, we were living in tight economic circumstance, but my parents are really hard workers who never gave up. I helped them by learning traditional Balinese dance and dancing in the different hotels in events promoted by dance studios. I'd also wake up very early in the morning to find flowers and sell them in the market. From dancing and flower sales, I was able to help parents pay our school fees. They spent years working hard, and finally we children finished studying in the university and they were also able to buy a house, which was their dream. The great wisdom from them taught me to be a self-sufficient woman, responsible in what I do.
"I graduated with a degree in tourism. But my sister and her husband manage a furniture company and taught me about furniture. Now I work with my sisters and my brother-in-law, dividing our work roles according to our individual abilities. We use manual carpentry tools to create our designs, and they've been really well accepted. Our special designs make our work look different from other furniture crafted in Bali. For me, minimalist designs are fascinating and I like them best.
"Now, through Novica, I hope our international friends will like our designs."
