Carina was born in 1983 in the Netherlands. She aims to connect with the viewer through the portraits she makes. Sometimes by capturing her own (possibly manipulated) face, but also by working with people with a special or marginal position in society and vulnerable locations like burned down houses. Often this results in works of art and design that are confrontational rather than comfortable, compelling the viewer to take a stand, and to reflect on social issues and developments. Since 2011, her work has been exhibited around the world and has received multiple awards and nominations.
