I was born in 1983 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have a degree on Design issued by the Universidad de Buenos Aires. I have participated in many exhibitions in my home city. In 2016 I moved to Florence and started participating in exhibitions at art galleries and festivals both in Florence and in other nearby towns.
I have studied at the Accademia d’Arte di Firenze (Florence Art Academy) where I discovered the palette knife oil painting. I fell in love with this technique and made my personal and artistic signature out of it.
I currently paint at my atelier La Serra MK. I work daily developing my personal artistic research and also painting by commission. Monthly, I also teach the palette knife oil painting on canvas technique.

Where you'll be

This experience will take place at the traditional La Serra MK atelier in Palazzo Pandolfini:
This palace was one of the first buildings erected in the northwest of the walled city in the late XV century. It featured a little “garden of the delights” and a rather big vegetable garden. As reported by Vasari, it was Raffaello Sanzio who designed the building around 1514 as commissioned by the Bishop Giannozzo Pandolfini. The garden and the palace were decorated with statues and fountains with dancing waters, donated by Pope Lion X, together with abundant flowers and plants. Eleonora Pandolfini built a greenhouse to shelter the most delicate plants during winter, and opened the palace to receive artists and writers as it did during the time of the Renaissance.

I had the BEST time learning how to paint with a palette knife with Carolina! I will never forget this day. I’m very happy with my piece, I learned many techniques, and felt so at-home with Carolina. She is such a gentle spirit, so generous & talented, and I am very glad to have met her and taken this class. Words can’t express my gratitude for this experience.

Working along side Carolina in a beautiful garden of an old palace of Florence was a once in a lifetime experience. She made me feel welcome & that the whole experience ‘was about Me’. She shared her time, skills and knowledge with me without hesitation. I learnt so much about the skills of using a palette knife. I highly recommend this whole experience. Karen

I enjoyed the art class very much, as it has now urged me to complete my own paintings in my spare time as this is truly a hobby of mine that I would like to complete and I now have the confidence to do so again. Thank you Carolina for a wonderful experience. I hope to be able to have the painting to remover my Florentine experience with you. Zahara Ela Rose
