  • Description

    I am Carine. I am a puppeteer, so I love making puppets! and animating them, (string puppets, hand puppets) all sorts of puppets, also simple puppets with scrunched brown Kraft paper, newspaper, odd objects, sticks etc. I love painting and drawing, and can also do general painting work, as I worked as a decorative painter in London. I love reading novels and children's books, going to museums, the cinema, exploring.
    I am happy to be of help around the house. Cleaning, grocery shopping and cooking are things I do everyday in my house, so happy to do it while living with you too. I am vegan, and I will be delighted to cook delicious vegan meals!
    Oh, and I have also worked as a graphic designer, with Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign, and Wordpress.
    My goal during my free time is to give puppet making workshops in schools, or retirement homes, for birthday parties, corporate events, and do street shows with my 2 puppets Wolfie and Pablina on weekends. And work on the project I have at the moment of taking pictures of Wolfie and Pablina towards an exhibition.
