About BOROLINA

Sales 898
On Etsy since 2018

Do what you love

That's what I wanted all my life.
Specially when I was working full time as an Architect, dealing with difficult clients, spending hours in the traffic and answering to a very nasty boss.
It took me years and lots of sacrifices, but I finally was able to do what I love and make a living out of it.
I taught myself how to draw and after some years of practice, here I am, making portraits of beautiful families and pets and illustrating children's books.
And I can do all of this from my cozy home, enjoying a cup of hot tea and surrounded by my dogs.
I am grateful and lucky to be able to live this kind of life.

  • Cynthia

    Owner, Maker

    I'm Cynthia, architect and self taught artist. I live in Mexico with my husband and our 4 dogs: Borola, Nala, Sansa and Sebastian. I spend my time drawing portraits, illustrating children's books and enjoying the simple pleasures of life.

  • Sebastian

    Marketer

    This is Sebastián, my rescue dog. He was mistreated as a puppy and me and the doctors saved him from dying and now he is a wonderful, happy dog who loves to run and fetch the ball. Oh! he also helps me with the marketing part of my business :)

  • Borola

    Customer Service

    This is Borola, whose name served as inspiration for this Etsy shop. I found her wandering on the streets of Mexico city and now she's been with me 12 years. She is in charge of costumer service, so any questions please direct them to her :)

  • Nala

    Experto En Marketing

    Found on the street, pregnant and starving. She’s now part of the family

Sizing details

The best printing size for your portrait would be 8"x11" inches (A4 size) in a photographic paper or couche paper.

Custom and personalized orders

I can arrange a group portrait for you even if you only have individual photos.
But I will need high resolution photos for a better result. Thank you

Other form of payment

If you don't have a paypal account, you can pay with a credit or debit card.

Custom and personalized orders

Of course! just send me a photo of that outfit and I will draw that in the portrait. I can also draw bride's dresses or evening gowns or any silly costume you can think of!
