On the way to become more of a painter.

All from the start, as long as she can remember, Carina have been drawing and painting.

Maybe that was just being a part of an artistic family. Her father painted and her mother did all sorts of crafting.

After school she started working at age 17, started a family some years after that, had kids, divorced, took care of kids that where growing up, met her new husband .... and then suddenly!! There was time to to start painting again!!

For about four years she took classes for an artist in Sweden. 

Learned techniques for both acrylic and oil painting, got to understand how colors works and much more.

And also learned not to be afraid for changing and to paint "ugly", to take the chance and just see where the painting took her.

In the middle of 2017 she and her husband moved from Sweden to Columbus, IN in the US.

During their 4 years stay she decided to take on the challenge to give all her time to develop herself as an artist.

From January 2018 Carina is a part of the Hoosier Artist Gallery in Nashville, IN. 

This gives a lot of inspiration in the meeting with other talented artists of many different specializations of art.

During 2019/20120 she has been taking the Online Mastery Program at Milan Art Institute. It is one year of painting, learning different techniques and in the end to find her own voice and expression. 

So now Carina will continue on the winding way to be a painter, the thing she always wanted to be as a child.

"Sometimes life and other things happens that slows you down.

But if you get a second chans, then you just have to take it!"
