About Me

I’m Ander and I’m a creative person…


I am an Architect, Designer and a Toy Artist; I like to find the jolly and playful side to every project I create. As a Toy Artist I love make unique, colorful, exciting and appealing pieces.

I was born and I grew up in Mexico in many different cities. After my years at the University I traveled and lived in the US and France, now I´m established in the US with my husband Mark.

I’ve been a toy collector since I can remember, because of my toys I was always making houses and dioramas for them with wood, cardboard or Legos.

I love Disney very much, I always wanted to be an Imagineer and design theme parks for the Mouse. By following my dreams, I had the awesome opportunities to work for Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris.

I am a big fan of Disney, Harry Potter, The Smurfs and My Little Pony, these brands inspire me to create and design toys to make people happy!!!

My big toy collection has a big variety, I don´t follow any specific way of doing it, only I follow my heart, and I collect toys that I like. Sometimes the toy is not finished well because it is made in mass prodution, or may be it is used and it needs a little help!

My toy collection guided me to start designing toys, first I started transforming toys to create something new with my repeated toys or to make them look better.

From time to time I feel like Santa Claus, Gepetto or Geri the Toy Repairman in “Toy Story 2”

This is my portfolio/blog, I’ll share many of my projects, like Art toys,  toy transformations, crafts and more.

Hope you enjoy and have fun with everything I post!!!

Love and Magic,
