AMAIA LARREA

"When I paint, the hours seem like minutes and I just stop because there is something that should be done. If it would be up to me, I would paint at all hours."

Born in San Sebastian in 1965, Amaia Larrea has always put into practice her creativity and, her artistic growth has been closely linked to the birth and subsequent development of her children. It has been with them when she has had the possibility of discovering her great artistic potential. Her knowledge has been self-taught, also by the hand of master craftsmen, and with monographic workshops. Her intuition has also served her for moments of uncertainty.

Her artistic explosiveness has been channeled through painting and her skills, and her curiosity has led her to the south of Spain to learn and to work with basket-makers. Without fear of being mistaken, we can say that we are facing the only palm tree basket maker in Guipúzcoa, a great knowledge that treasures and wishes to share with people.

One of her desires in life is to create and work with her hands to be able to express and transmit her emotions. She would like Zurjole to become a space where every person who arrives could develop his art, his worries; a place to share knowledge and experiences.
