About

Cara Carmina is my world!

When I was a little girl, I spent my days drawing... I loved to draw... I used to wish my mom would buy me that huge and oh so beautiful 250 color pencils box!!!! (I used to stare in the window of the art supplies stores, with my nose stuck at it with my heart beating fast) The box never arrived, it was too expensive... But my dreams stayed!

I`m not a little girl any more, but I still look in the art supplies windows with my nose stuck to them at my favorite things and with my heart beating fast. I love to find new materials to make my dolls, my dioramas and collages. I like to touch fabrics and look at colorful patterns. I enjoy the smell of old book stores and flea markets where I go hunt for little treasures to add to my works, and every time I do find one, my heart still beats fast inside my chest!

I love to create, I love to be able to express the way I see the world in each one of my works, I enjoy giving life to different wonderful beings!. I love to see children and adults smiling when they see what I do!!! Each one of my pieces have a piece of my heart inside and it is made with the greatest love and care.

Cara Carmina has been my dear dream since I can remember, a dream which little by little has become a reality. It is my world!

Thank you for visiting my store and for sharing the dream of a little girl who once wanted 250 colored pencils! -Eventually I got the one with 72 (it`s still in my studio with almost every color pencil brand new!)

Welcome to my world!
