About Carolina...

Hello :)
I study art conservation and restoration and this is my dream job ♥
I also like to draw and i'm really enthusiastic about illustration! Right now some of my favorite illustrators that i can think of are Arthur Rackham and Yoshitaka Amano (but i have many others).
I'm also passionate about japanese or asiatic art in general, even the more old school paintings or gravures. I find the landscapes paintings breathtaking.
And lacquer, i love japanese lacquer and hope to work with it someday.
And since i'm talking about japan, i'm also a big anime and manga addict ^^ well, i like cartoons in general
but i also like and want to learn about other countries art :)

One of my major hobbies is crafting stuff and right now i am all obsessed with pixels and perler/hama beads.
i also like to watch movies, series... and i love to read. I love books. I guess i'll never get used to reading ebooks, there's nothing like opening a book: the scent, the touch, de details of it.

Ah! I'm also very curious about crystals and gemstones and i'm trying to start my own collection. If this is one of your interests and you have some books or info about it, it would be awesome of you to write it down or even send prints, so i can learn more. Some of my favorite gemstones are Moonstone and labradorite.

Tea is essential in my life ♥ i drink tea all the time, and i also colect it. i have more or less 40 different flavors right now. i would love to receive a bag or two of one tea flavor that you like or that it's traditional in your region. And tea mugs ♥
I must confess that i also love sweets ^^
♥ cooking and learn new recipes. so if you can send me some, i'd be very happy.

<3 everything about autumn: the colours, the leaves, the clouds, the rain, the wind (rainy days feel like home to me)

<3 Landscapes, The moon and the stars, snow, the woods, rivers and mountains. Animals (like cats, foxes, squirrels, red pandas, owls...).
♥ Winter patterns like those of christmas sweaters with snowflakes, trees, reeinders...
♥ cute/kawaii stuff

<3 folklore, habits, mythology, horror stories, fairies and all of those creatures, so i'd be glad if you tell stories and folk or horror tales about your country. I'd be really happy, since i want to learn all that i can about it :)
♥ yõkai and ayakashi

♥ music and in general i listen to metal (black, post-black, doom, epic, power), rock, folk, blues, avantgarde, experimental, post-rock (which i absolutely love), shoegaze, dream pop, stoner, grunge, sludge, desert rock, cluster, j-rock (j-music in general), classical, opera... well, you got the idea.
