    Fernanda Quiñones

     

    Guadalajara, Jalisco. June 18, 1987.

    Creative artist and designer. Mexico.

     

    Ever since I can remember I’ve always had an interest and passion for art. Throughout my childhood and adolescence, I had the opportunity to work in the family's business, experiencing first hand and working alongside professional craftmasters, fiber weavers and sewers. Creating beautiful furniture with my own hands, using only raw materials and artisans’ tools has impacted profoundly my creative spirit.

     

    I currently work as Lead Creative Designer & Project Manager for Rattan de Guadalajara, the place that has allowed me to flourish professionally since I was a child. Armed now with multiple international art and creative courses, a professional business degree, and experience travelling worldwide, I infuse my energy and creativity into my everyday work. Nothing is more satisfying than the sheer act of creating by letting myself unleash the very best I have to offer. I feel truly alive doing what I do and being who I am.
