i am a self-defined Nuyorican creative (that is a Puerto Rican who is from both the isles of Manhattan, NYC and the Caribbean). I share daily in the joy of education and live in a cute port town in New York, in a 'teensy-weensy' apartment with my two dogs and canary named Valentino. Check out my Etsy shop for purchasable pieces. Please do not reproduce imagery off of this site without explicit credit and no derivatives may be made of my original imagery- Thank You.

CRAFT: I'm a Crafter!
The Small Is Beautiful Manifesto
Amarettogirl a.k.a Marisol Diaz Amarettogirl is: A little girl with sticky hands and dirty fingernails with a penchant for walking in the wild and digging her bare toes into the moss-laden earth. Her matted long tendrils of hair are pleated with briars and the juice of raw berries can be seen staining her lips and chin. She is perpetually in love with underground behemoths. She especially enjoys watching said behemoths sit on boxes, leaving them crushed and useless... this makes her smile, from ear to ear. Amarettogirl is marisol diaz , a self-defined NuYorican Visual Artist and writer. A Career Creative who relishes in blurring the line between fine art and craft, designing and making, surviving and thriving.
