Honored to showcase our INAP AWARDS Judges – Representing Mexico: Ms. Carolina de la Cajiga

This year at the 2017 INAP AWARDS – Ms. Carolina served on a panel of International Judges for the ‘International Naturally Autistic People AWARDS’

SHORT BIO: Compulsive creator.  Loves to share what generates in her mind.

De la Cajiga’s introduction to fine art started in Paris where she took History of Art at the Louvre Museum, one of the major art houses of the world. She spent hours observing the great masterpieces; seeing how each painter has distinct ways of handling the brush to apply the paint and how sculptors use their chisels in particular ways leaving one-of-a-kind marks-like fingerprints. This inspired her to become a visual artist. As of late, she has added creative photography to her artistic endeavours.

De la Cajiga has managed to incorporate her experience in painting and sculpture into her fine art photography to create abstract, conceptual digital designs which seem tridimensional.

Her art education has been eclectic, taking courses as needed. She has attended Langara College, Capilano University, Focal Point, Vancouver Photo Workshops, and Emily Carr University in Vancouver, Canada; the Art Institute in San Miguel Allende, Mexico, and the Academy of Realist Art in Seattle, USA.

She has exhibited in various galleries in Canada, Mexico, the U.S., and Venezuela. She has artwork in these public or private institutions: West Vancouver Museum, Business Council of BC, and Richmond Hospital, BC; as well as in private collections in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Mexico, Spain, the U.S., and Venezuela.

Carolina was born in Mexico City and has lived in Vancouver, Canada, for over 30 years.
