Artist Profile: Ayda Castro
The Castro family was displaced from Colombia for political reasons. They were refugees in Ecuador, where Ayda and Sara met a woman named Paquita Pluas. She taught them the art of jewelry and to work with the tagua. It is an exotic seed that only grows in the Amazon. They are now refugees in the USA. Ayda, along with her husband, Nestor, are working hard to provide for their three children and grandson.
