My name is Liliana Ferrero de Tosi. I was born in Armstrong, Santa Fe province, Argentina, where I still live and work.
I have been attracted by handicraft since an early age and I have been trying different kinds until I attended the International Cold Porcelain course dictated by the teacher Beatriz Titi Pena in Buenos Aires, where I discovered  the wonderful world of cold porcelain and egg crafting.

Since that moment onwards I have been participating in the exhibitions organized by that International Center in Buenos Aires and also other multinational contests having won important prizes.
I  am in love with wath I do and I try to communicate this strong feeling not only presenting new, innovative pieces of personal creativity , but also teaching  my pupils to appreciate what they can do with their hands.
I would also like to thank my husband Emilio for his permanent and unconditional support.
