Hello, my name is Carolina Elena; I am an painter and a cook. Making time stand still, if only for a moment, in this rapidly paced world, is my goal. My childhood was exhuisite; I was fortunate enough to grow up with time being something that I owned in it's entirety. Daily life, with it's pushing and pulling in all directions, can be very trying. Painting allows me to return to observing this world with childlike wonder. Therefore, I paint and I cook because I find that doing both of these things slows time back to a pace that I thrive in, and it allows me to continue to live in a place of discovery and wonder. By sharing all of this with you, I hope it sets you off on a life long path of discovery as well.
