My name is Carolina and I’m an illustrator, writer and painter. I'm originally from Cd. Obregon, Sonora, Mexico. I lived in Tucson, AZ for the past 15 years, where I earned my BA in Illustration (and minored in Art History). I'm currently working on earning my MFA in Painting at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD.
I was a novice not too long ago. I was seventeen and my mind was made up. I was ready to start my art education. I had very little guidance and no resources to pull from, so I stumbled my way through teaching myself to draw until I was old enough to go to college. I’ve come a long way since then. It’s been a challenging journey and it’s not over yet (I don’t believe artists ever stop learning).
Looking back I see all the ways in which I hindered my own learning and let so many misconceptions keep me from mastering my skills because I didn’t know any better. I know there are many people like that out there, feeling ready to learn and in dire need of guidance.
I understand that feeling and I want to help you. Nobody should have to go through it alone. That’s why I’m here to help you along the way! I want to help you become the amazing artist you want to be. So let’s embark on this adventure together! Be ready to work hard and don’t let anyone discourage you from pursuing your dream. I believe in you!
