Weaving, designing, carving and being creative is something Seniloli Sovea has been doing for the past 35 years.
Her creative talent has seen her open a small business in Suva.
The 67-year-old, who lives in Nasole, Nasinu, has a small business at the Suva Flea Market and is part of the art exhibition staged at Sukuna Park, in central Suva, by the Fiji Arts Council.
Ms Sovea makes decorative necklaces with shells, mirrors, jewellery, wall hangings and many other stuff using local materials like masi, (bark of mulberry tree) voivoi (pandanus leaves) and sea shells.
She said with her small business she had brought up her five children.
"This supplemented my husband's income at that time," she said.
She said the ideas for making handicraft came naturally to her and through her visits to other countries.
Ms Sovea has attended art exhibitions in Australia, New Zealand and other South Pacific nations.
She is a tutor at University of the South Pacific at the Laucala Bay campus teaching part time students how to weave and carve.
Ms Sovea loves sharing her creative knowledge with those interested in her line of work.
The inaugural Heritage Art Exhibition is being staged for a week.
In a statement, the council said the exhibition provided an ideal opportunity for artists to showcase their work like weaving, masi-making, pottery and ceramics, carving, adornment and textiles.
