My name is Karina, I am 23 years old, I balance grad school, my daytime job, and my small art business - and I love all of it.
I am going for my Master of Arts in Art Therapy and Counseling at Albertus Magnus in New Haven, CT. To have found a career path that melts together my passion for art and my fascination with psychology, in order to help others through their toughest times, is the greatest thing I could have asked for. I don't graduate until 2022, but I am already so, so thrilled and excited to be on this path. 💛✨
Images Studio: a photography studio in Watertown, CT, owned by a family I've known since I was little. There, I am Production Manager where I do so much more than can be listed in a blog post, while having the absolute best time with the sweetest people. I am so, truly blessed. 📷
My first job was at Glazey Dayz, a paint-your-own pottery studio in Watertown, CT. I stayed there for 4 years and eventually became Assistant Manager. To go to work and be surrounded by colors, art, and creativity was endlessly magical. If you're ever looking for a creative afternoon or evening, I highly recommend going there (they even have BYOB ladies nights!). 🖌
I'm also trying to grow my wonderful tiny art business on the side! I have exciting things planned coming up, stay tuned...! (The collage is a self-portrait out of shreds of paper!)
