We are two artists/partners who fell in love with the crafts & one of kind + unique products of some women makers. We decided to showcase them to the world.

At Collage Cafe Gallery, we simply want to share our love for handcrafts of the talented women through our simple – yet beautiful crafts that are mostly, made out of natural raw materials, endemic to their countries.

We are bringing artistic work from different countries and put them together like pieces of collage.

Our goal is to introduce women artists who are unknown and empower them by finding a bigger market for their products.

“I crave variety in everything I do. I’m always trying new dessert recipes, adding my own spin on them. This keeps things interesting in a way so that it never feels like a job.”
