Preservation and Sustainability
Driven by a love of beauty and a desire to preserve the past, Petra spent years developing her aesthetic eye through a multitude of experiences including working as an interior stylist, photographer, potter, floral designer, and refinisher of antique goods.
Born in Hungary, Petra grew up living under a socialist regime where she listened to stories from her family members about the devastation left in the aftermath of World War II. Through these untold stories, lost in time, she learned about the treasured artifacts lost in the destruction.
With a degree in Anthropology from Oregon State University, Petra's love for art, passion for history, and her heart for preserving the stories of our ancestors, is exhibited within Ethnic Origin Company's curation.
