Carapace, as she is known in the Etsy world and the "real" world, is an artist of many mediums. Her shop, Carapace, is filled with scuptures, jewelry, illustrations, bookmarks and a few other things. Etsy is not her "full-time" job because even without Etsy, Cara would be creating but this gives her the chance to share her creations with others.
She loves to makes adorable sculptures out of polymer clay but her favorite medium is pencil and paper. The creative juices started flowing for Cara as a child, when her mother would give her chores if she said she was bored. Her solution, being creative! To this day if Cara is having artist's block, she will do something boring to get her right back to creating beautiful works of art. Even the touch of clay can get Cara motivated into making something beautiful that is nature inspired.
As a mother, naturally Cara is proud of her children. When it comes to her artwork and creations, Cara is most proud when they are sold or given and the person receiving likes it.
A few fun facts about Carapace: Her favorite color is green because of its organic origin and the versatility of its many shades. If she could be a fruit, Cara would be a pomegranate because they are great to be eaten or used as a still life picture. Since the pomegrante is alot of work to open, they are often left un-eaten and that is what Cara inspires to be: Lovely, Old and Not eaten by hungry passerby's!! Cheese and Nuts are what Cara likes to eat or lots of salsa. Momo by Michael Ende is Cara's favorite book because it teaches the real importance of time. The book helped teach Cara how to live and she loves to recommend others read it and learn the amazing things she did. Lastly, one that she is sharing with us is that she still cries at the animated Christmas stories. From Frosty to the Grinch and all of them in between make her mist up.
