About

Create. To bring into being

Hi there, my name is Carina Povarchik, I do sign all my art as Catru.
I live in Argentina, in Mendoza the town of the wine

Catru does have a personal meaning for me. When I was born my parents wanted to call me Catruska. It was a russian name and it wasn't accepted. One of my cousins got hooked and called me like that. When being a teenager my friends got the nickname Catru for me. And then, it was short, easy to remember and it reminds me of a lot of history about myself. So, here I am, Catru :)
My roots? well italian and ukranian mostly.

Academic portrait drawing, watercolour painting, clay sculpting, children's illustrations are among the many areas I love.
My main focus, although, is on two things, children's illustration and sculpting in tiny scale.

I love birds, clouds and chocolate. A good laughter, a good friend, good music.
Inspiration comes to me in so many ways, from a bird singing in the window to somebody that said something funny, to a gorgeous cloud up in the sky.

If you get curious, you can have a sneak peek on how I craft my miniatures. I made a video showing my hands during the creation of a tiny cat :D
