About Carosurreal

My name is Carolina Parada but you probably know me as Carosurreal. I’m a biologist and also an illustrator based in Paris, France. I draw and tell stories on diverse characters and subjects, mainly (but not only) for kids.

I self-published my first picture storybook last year and I’m now working on a second one about the spirits and creatures populating the cloud forest in the mountains of South America, where I am originally from. This is my main long-term project. Nature, mythology, fantasy, adventure, and solidarity are important pieces of this future book.

Even though I enjoy working in science, I love illustration and it is becoming a very important part of my life. I am considering devoting 100% of my time to it. I decided to open a Patreon page to share a more detailed view of my work with those deeply interested in it and to explore the possibility of becoming a full-time artist. Thank you all for your support!
