My name is Carolina and I am a Mexican-American illustrator and story artist. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a BFA concentration in Illustration.


In the past year I’ve worked as a pre-vis and storyboard artist on indie animation projects, and I’ve even illustrated a children’s book. I’m currently working on Pelea; a short film not only addressing the issue of climate change, but also including the minority voices affected by it. As a Chicano artist I look for a place where I can showcase my skill set, but also help represent voices that may be too far to hear. I strive to see more creatives from a minority background on and behind the big screen. I always aim to feature minority characters in my work, but I also love working with other artists who may come from different cultural backgrounds and help me understand a new perspective. I’m excited to share stories with the world and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
