My name is Vilma Farrell and I live in NYC. I was a journalist in Brasilia, capital of the politicians in Brazil. Now I'm stay-at-home-mom and the artisan behind Lampada. I handcraft lamps with recycled coffee filters. Have you ever seen lamps and lamp shades made from recycled coffee filters? When I was in the 8th grade I knew what I wanted. I wanted to be a Journalist. As a journalist I thought I couldn't do anything else but Journalism. Now living in NYC over 10 years I found out that I can do many different things and I discovered the artist I am. My inspiration comes from Brazil, land of dark coffee, rich spices and muita alegria.
