Ever since she was very small, Carolina loved drawing. She attained a BA in Graphic Design in Moldova and then a distinction in Children’s Book Illustration at the prestigious Cambridge School of Art.
Carolina’s stunning first picture book, Snow (Faber & Faber, 2014) beautifully illustrates Walter de la Mare’s poem and was published to critical acclaim: it was nominated for the esteemed Kate Greenaway Medal and recently featured on The Independent's list of '11 Best Books for 4 to 7-Year-Olds'. Carolina went on to complete the Walter de la Mare: The Ride-by-Nights (2015), Summer Evening (2016) and the eagerly awaited Silver (2017), published in the UK, Russia, Japan and China.
She also authored and illustrated Crunch! (Child’s Play, 2015), a warm and touching tale about friendship, which was shortlisted for the Read It Again competition in 2016 and is translated into five languages.
Carolina loves working on a diverse range of projects and her artwork reveals a unique mix of traditional as well as digital techniques.
