"My designs reveal a tiny bit of Mexico that I carry in my heart."
"Hi. I'm Ana Maria González, and for as long as I can remember I've been in contact with arts and crafts. My whole family produced them in one way or another and whenever we'd visit our relatives, my cousins and I would end up making something for fun.
"After I married, my husband and I created various kinds of handicrafts, but the need to make something different led me to launch my own line of designs. I began making decorative boxes, painted by hand with different finishes. Today I create boxes with antique motifs.
"First we craft the box of pinewood. We sand it and then decorate it. Currently, I am working in decoupage, adding an antique finish with a special formula I mix myself.

El retablo de Na Sra de Guadalupe es exquisito. Me siento honrada de tenerlo y estoy segura que comprare otra de sus peizas en el futuro. Saludos cordiales, Margarita de Q
Just an added note in English---the retablo of Our Lady of Guadalupe is stunning! The photograph doesn't do it justice. Novica's customer service is the best!
I ordered this beautiful Frida Kahlo chest for my wife's birthday. She was so excited when she received it. First of all, it was wrapped so beautifully and when she opened it, the chest was in perfect condition and it is so awesome. We are so pleased with this treasure. We highly recommend this artist and this website. Thank you.
I gave the Virgin of Guadalupe to my wife for Christmas. It came beautifully wrapped and is a great piece. I would highly recommend Ana Marie Gonzalez's work to anyone.
I'm from Mexico, and when I recieved the Guadalupe chest I was amazed. It immediately reminded me of the handcrafted items that I would find in my homeland. Great detail and workmanship. Excellent all the way around. I am definitely going to do repeat business with NOVICA and especially with Ana Maria. Thanks a lot!
I received the Frida Kahlo chest box today and oh my, what a piece of art it is! I love the exquiste craftsmanship. Thanks to Ana Maria for such a beautiful box and Novica Mexico for such gorgeous packaging.
I just received the ""Nosotros Madre de Guadalupe"" and she is perfectly hanging up already in her special place where for years I have had her novena lit. The colors fit beautifully in our home as if she was made just for us- gracias~

La caja de joyas que recibi esta hermosisima! Mucho mas bonita de lo que esperaba. La veo y me da mucha alegria. Siento que es mi primera compra de mujer adulta, una caja que me gustaria que pasara de generacion en generacion. Muchas gracia por el empeño que le pone a sus cajas, por seguro comprare unas cuantas mas. Gracias.
I ordered a small decoupage box by Ana Maria Gonzalez for a friend. When it arrived, it was even more lovely than in the photos, In fact, it was so beautifully made and decorated that I couldn't resist keeping it for myself! Now I'm ordering several more for friends. I was surprised at the low mailing cost - and it came perfectly gift-wrapped with local paper from Mexico. --J.M., California, USA
I love this artist!!! as a person AND an a very talented artist!!! My piece was sooo thoughtfully wrapped, had a NICE thank you card, hand written, my piece is STUNNING!!!!! arrived very quickly!!! I will be purchasing more from her!!!
I just received via Fedex Express (super quick) shipping my beautiful decoupage ""Guadalupe, Queen of Heaven"" wooden cross. The quality and craftsmanship are outstanding, much nicer than I had anticipated as the photo simply does not do it justice. The finishing is very fine and smooth, perfect. The colors are clear and brilliant and the size has substance and balance--a nice, thick piece of wood with step-beveled edges painted an antiqued gold, nothing flimsy. The ""hook"" for hanging is very securely attached, a movable thick, ring of metal with an appropriately weathered finish. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I went online and immediately ordered the larger cross, ""Virgin Morenita Guadalupe"" as well. Gracias! Ana Maria.
I have bought various items from this artist. The Two Fridas magazine rack is fantastic. I await more Frida designed items from Ana Maria. Superb work and excellent packing.
This was a great shopping experience. Thank you for the time and care you took with my package and getting the item to me so quickly. Everything arrived in perfect condition. It’s just the sweetest decoupage box ever. Everytime I look at it I can't help but smile - I love it, Rhonda

FINDING YOUR SIZE
Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size.
