Jane Maroni and her husband, Chris Nielsen, discovered the region when they moved from Hawaii six years ago, settling in Lo de Marcos, a beachfront town north of San Pancho, in Riviera Nayarit.

A consummate collector, she began collecting driftwood, seeds, fishbones and other natural objects she found on the beach during her daily walks. Quite unexpectedly, the objects pointed her to a creative path that resulted in the creation of unique mobile sculptures designed to rotate effortlessly on their own with the slightest touch or ocean breeze, unlike any other in the region.

Last year, Jane and Chris moved to Punta Negra, just north from Punta Mita, to be closer to potential clients from Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas. At their Punta Negra home, Jane and Chris welcome visitors by appointment. For more information, or to schedule an appointment and discover the entire range of mobile sculptures in different styles and sizes , visit her website or her Facebook page.

It all starts here. Jane piles up driftwood and other materials in her backyard, then selects complementary objects for each creation.

Other objects, such as these blowfish bones, are arranged around the house, imbuing the space with a natural sense of beauty.

“It has taken years to collect these hard-to-find seeds,” her husband remarked.

The impressive scale of some of Jane’s sculptures have made them extremely popular in several region hotels and private residences.

While design for constant movement, the sculptures also make a dramatic statement when installed against a wall.

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”
