About me...

Greeting earthlings

Welcome to a section that is all about me! You can see all my work, hobbies, and interests on the rest of my page, but if you’re here to learn about me, then like Maria Von Trap said “let's start at the very beginning”... I was named by my grandma, after Princess Caroline Louise Marguerite of Monaco, but in spanish (cause I’m Mexican) so Carolina it is, and it’s pronounced Car-Oh-Lyn-Ah, I also go by Caro but never by Carol. I don’t know if names have an impact on our personalities, but I sure do feel regal and classy. I was born and I grew up in Hermosillo, Sonora, and ever since my first breath I've been known for marching at the beat of my own drum. I’ve never fully been able to swallow that two-sided double-edged compliment, but I do agree I am unapologetically myself. I am passionate about my interests, work, and loved ones, I speak what's on my mind, I am selfless, and very hard working.

My heart has always been split between my two passions: Creativity and Animals. I chose art as my career path, I love it’s technical aspect and being a Graphic Designer and Photographer happened naturally for me. I've been blessed with so many opportunities in those areas, I enjoy working in them so much I don't even mind that I need a new prescription for my glasses every year. I think of my “good eye” and “taste” as a superpower, I love creating and sharing my art with the world, and helping people love their brand. A lot of my influences come from classical elements of art, such as ballet and classical music (both of which I trained at during my school years). Nature is another big influence for me, I love to spend my free time gardening, growing food crops, and flowers. Cleanliness, elegance, harmony, simplicity, emotion, and beauty, are aspects I always try to achieve in my work.

Now for the other half of my heart… Animals! I always thought I was going to become a veterinarian, and so did everyone else around me! (And I still want to, I just haven't found a program that adapts to my busy schedule yet). I love all animals, especially domestic and farm animals. My dream is to live on a farm and have rescue horses, cows, donkeys, goats, pigs, and chickens. So far I’ve only been able to rescue cats and dogs, along with my mom and aunt we’ve been able to spay and neuter several stray and feral cats from our community, and we also sponsor several others from a local rescue foundation. Currently I have five cats, a dog, and a tortoise, they all inspire me so much, a lot of my work is solely based on them.

And that’s it for now! There is a lot about myself that I omitted (like my love for cooking, learning russian, swimming, skating, and personal care), but I’m starting to feel a little narcissistic with all this talk about me… If you want to get to know me more, be sure to follow me on my social media!
