Carina Imbrogno is a disabled self-taught award-winning inspirational artist who began her art at the age of 40 in 2015. I enjoy drawing portraits of people children pets and wildlife animals the most. I also enjoy still lives and landscapes. She is a walking miracle who has defeated death many times. She suffers from a genetic disorder called Elhers Danlos Syndrome kyphoscoliosis type. Due to this disease only being discovered in 2015 Carina’s spine collapsed twice having to endure many life-saving surgeries. She has two rods and twenty-six screws holding my spine. She also suffers from learning disabilities including ADHD. She found her passion in art late in life and feels it’s never too late to do what you are meant to do. She feels she is being guided by God to inspire others that are in a similar situation. Carina enjoys the style of realism. She can work in many different mediums. Three years ago she discovered pastels and that became her medium of choice. She has created over 140 works of art since 2015. She enjoys depicting children because of her inability to ever have them. She also enjoys depicting people, pets, wildlife, landscapes, nature, still lives, and botanicals. She is inspired by the old masters. Her art is a form of therapy that saved her life and also a way to inspire others with her inspirational miraculous story.
