This exhibition includes her latest body of work. “This opportunity to showcase my collection of “CHILDREN OF WAR” is very exciting and meaningful to me. I want the children to speak for themselves.

My other works on display reflect clearly my emotions around the issues of life, social and/or political issues. My art is my voice.”

Born South African, Carina now lives in a New Hampshire lakefront studio where she feels most inspired. “When I started working with clay, I was not sure where it all was leading. But clay has its own way. The more we worked side by side, the more we formed a strong bond in our appreciation for form and beauty. Together we developed a mutual respect for the creative process of sculpting. This is when, and only then, I am able to stand back with a sigh of joy and pray…”
