About us

Alicia is a teaching artist and social entrepreneur, dedicated 100% to her art and teaching. Alicia founded Happy Industries in 2011 in New York, inspired on the one hand, by his son's artistic talents, and on the other, by the growing demand of her artwork. 


The artist graduated with a BS in Psychology in Mexico D.F. and specialized in Art Therapy from Endicott College. Additionally, Alicia studied her Master in Educational Technologies at Harvard and taught Spanish for several years at Harvard University, New York University, UPenn among other universities.


Currently, Alicia is painting and teaching at her Art studio in Tampa and offering art classes and art events. 

Lazaro developed, among others, his main character: Happy, at the age of seven. Since then, he has been creating new characters, and designing hand-made toys.

Marta has an eye for things that are super cute. She also enjoys making  each one of our toys by hand. Squeezable and lovable toys are her ultimate passion. She likes the design process as much as the creation of the item. Marta is a happy crafter.
