IQM Members - Danijela Tonković, trade for production and service
My name is Danijela Tonković, I was born in the Gacka valley in 1976. I am a mother of two and I have a job as an accountant. I have always been creative, but I started substantial activity about ten years ago, when I started wood painting as a gift to my closest ones. Through the work itself, I started growing more ideas, and it led to a greater assortment of the gifts. It was just a hobby for a long time, then I became a member of the Pavenka creative cooperative, and then, seeing as the market was devoid of such produce, I decided to register a household industry in 2018. As the touristic activity in the Gacka valley increased, so did the demand for souvenirs. This is why I presented my souvenirs last year at the EKO ETNO fair in Otočac and I have to admit that I am more than pleased with the customers' reactions, which inspires me even more. The figures symbolically represent a man and a woman from Lika, and are named LIK & LIKICA. They can be placed on a table as a decoration, but they also have a magnet on the back, so you can also place them on your refrigerator.
