Brief Summary
Hi! my name is Carolina, I am a doodler and freelance illustrator!

Read on to learn more about me:

Since childhood, Carolina’s been drawn to Art (no pun intended) but seldom perceived it as something that she could do for a respectable living. It wasn't until she and her husband moved to Orlando in 2001, that Carolina fully embraced the urge to let her art come alive. For over 12 years, she has been illustrating her doodles into clean, crisp & fun illustrations.

Carolina currently owns the beloved entertainment company, Carolina The Doodler Face Painting, and has been an active volunteer for CityArts Factory co-producing the Annual Dia de los Muertos & Monster Factory Exhibit since 2010. Carolina and her husband homeschool their two sons and co-own the independent record label Tacatantán Records, where she leads the role of Public Relations Manager.

Professional Experience
Carolina The Doodler
illustrator / Professional Face Painter

I am and have always been a compulsive doodler. As an artist, I cannot escape, ignore or deny an urge to be creative. So if there is a pen (or pencil) and a usable piece of paper (of any kind) nearby, rest assured that I will most likely end up drawing some random doodle on it.

My drawings are mostly improvisational interpretations stemming from a combination of my imagination, the presence of audio/visual stimulation and the current level of comfort of the drawing tool in my hand.
In essence, each drawing is an embodiment of my creative process itself which is in my opinion the best part of being an artist.

It all begins with a mindless doodle on the most readily available drawing surface (post-its, napkins, notebook paper, receipts and in my early years scan-tron sheets, school desks and my arms and legs). I often go through my notebooks and piles of paper and save all the doodles I can find in a folder for later review. (I learned that a seemingly mediocre doodle deserves to be revisited for a second chance to shine after some time).
When the time is right, I look through my folders of stored drawings and choose the ones that make me: feel, think, wonder and/or smile. And finally I carefully illustrate the drawing, omit any errors and add the final details. My mediums of choice are Black Pitt Pens on Bristol illustration paper and when I’m feeling colorful, I use Colored Pencils for accents. Additionally I create art in other mediums such as acrylic paintings, murals, polymer clay and Face Painting.

Being able to express myself artistically through drawing clears my mind enough to remind me that underneath my whimsical ways, I am a regular human being. When a person finds a detail in my art that they can relate to, I feel like I’ve done my part in helping someone else find sweet relief in the fact that no matter how whimsy they think they may be, they are a regular human being too.
I am also the proud owner of “Carolina The Doodler Face Painting Inc” and am currently celebrating 2 years serving the Central Florida Community with awesome Face Painting for All Ages!
