Growing up in Honduras, I never dreamed of becoming a professional artist. However, art has always been a part of my life. I started my art studies as a child in Tegucigalpa, in the private art studio Arte Carolina Carias. After high school, I went to study business in Texas. While obtaining a business degree (BBA) at Abilene Christian Education, I chose to take art classes at a college level. Yet, becoming a professional artist never crossed my mind.
I won a full-ride scholarship to get a master’s degree in business administration from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, and throughout my years of studying at universities, I worked in various creative and marketing roles. At that point, I still had not thought of pursuing art professionally.
While living abroad, traveling to new places, and experiencing new cultures I finally realized that art and creating is a crucial part of who I am.
In early 2018 I opened my art studio based in my hometown of Tegucigalpa.
As I develop my art practice, I continue to be challenged by art and what it entails. My dream is to one day be an old lady with lots of gray hair, still growing and creating.
