Mi Amada Comunidad,

As we embark on this journey with the launch of our new website, I can’t help but reflect on the winding road that brought us here. Born in the heart of Guatemala, amidst its eternal spring, my roots run deep with the vibrant energy of new beginnings. From there to various cities around the globe, each step has been a testament to resilience and the power of possibility.

Throughout this journey, I’ve faced my share of challenges, losses, and moments of grieving, each offering profound lessons in healing and growth. But amidst the trials, I’ve also been surrounded by love — from real-life angels who have graced my path and now form an integral part of our family. Love has always found its way in.

Today, as I stand before you, humbled and grateful, I am reminded of the beauty of human connection and the transformative power of compassion. At St. Etienne Studio, we pour our hearts into every design, infusing it with the warmth of our mayan heritage and the essence of our collective experiences. Our mission is simple yet profound: to create spaces, objects, sanctuaries that resonate deeply with the human spirit.

I invite you, amigas, amigos, amigues, to explore our digital home, to connect with our comunidad, and to join us on this journey of growth and transformation. Together, let’s embrace the beauty of new beginnings and the boundless possibilities that lie ahead.

And to all the remarkable women out there, bravely balancing the roles of motherhood, entrepreneurship, and expat life, know that you are not alone. Let us come together, aligned in our journeys, supporting and uplifting one another as we navigate the joys and challenges of life.

With heartfelt gratitude,


Founder & Creative Director
