The art is remarkable, and when you meet the artists you will understand why. Abel and Melva are amazing artist and wonderful people. I have come to cherish both the art and artists. If visit Merida, you must see this little gem in San Ana.

I spent 6 months studying with Abel and Melva....not only are they incredible artists, they're the warmest people you'll ever meet. It was a privilege to watch the thought process become something tangible. Their work is a fine combination of imagination and technique.
