Company name: Berivan Serin Stone Painting

Brief description of my product:

Each of my painted rocks is hand-picked by me from the beaches of Malta. Inspired by nature, my rocks display a variety of life and scenes from my unique imagination.

Why I love participating in Malta Artisan Markets:

I have been participating at Malta Artisan Markets for 2 years now and apart from giving me the opportunity to exhibit my art it has also given me the opportunity to discover many different and beautiful locations of Malta which provide a perfect backdrop for their events and which local and foreign art fans love to come and visit. With the broad variety of other talented artists and craftsmen present it provides me with a feeling of belonging and motivates me to carry on being creative.
