Doña Paty and Doña Nicolasa


Originally  from the state of Guerrero, Doña Paty and her friend, Doña Nicolasa, now live together in the Javier Obando neighborhood. Apart from being native speakers of Nahuatl, both women learned to paint as a trade. Together, they paint bowls, gourds, and figurines using traditional techniques. They then sell their products on the beach and to local retailers.
