Created by Mrs. Isabel Porras.
From Arte Marena, Museo Islita
Community of Corozalito, Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
Her artistic connection was born in 2003, by means of the creation of "Museo Islita" and the empowerment of local artists, a project promoted by Hotel Punta Islita and its social responsibility and sustainability initiatives.
Isabel expresses her creativity through the careful crafting of coconut shells, creating decorative and functional pieces, which she sometimes mixes with wood and sand. "Making these pieces allows me to rescue this material and give life to it. It fills me with satisfaction to know that I am taking advantage of what nature has to offer". She would like that her clients to know that acquiring a product from Arte Marena is to get a little piece of nature, a unique coconut shell whose purpose was, to end up being art".
Museo Islita provides continuous support to Guanarte, the collective of five local artist groups consisting of nearly 60 artists (mostly women): Papaturras, Cantarrias, PintArte, BosqueMar, Matrices and Arte Marena. Read more about them in "About us".
