Karina- As a creator, I have found and enjoyed multiple mediums in which to express myself. Through Divina Halos I’ve been able to incorporate not only my interests but some of my identity. Including my culture was one of the first steps when it came to the spirit of Divina, beginning with the name. Then with that spirit came the creations of the designs. Amongst the many halos I’ve created, there’s one inspired by the artist Frida Kahlo as well as a piece that paid homage to my parents’ hometown in Mexico. And while our divinas mainly know me as the face of Divina, I was primarily a filmmaker before this. By combining my storyteller side with my painting side I’ve been able to create a bridge between these two art forms and invite the world into this fantasy come reality. 

How did you get into creating?
Very early on in life, I showed interest by drawing whenever I could and even getting caught sketching on the corners of my class notebooks. But a figure in my life that made me most interested in art was my abuela, Cristina. She embodied creativity in many forms like jewelry making and painting. I liked to observe her and one day she caught my curious eye and sat me down to teach me both. From then on I began to continuously draw my flowers, vines, and celestial symbols which have become staples in my halo designs. A few of our halo designs were inspired by decorations we’ve had in our home for what seems like forever. My mom gave me these sun mirrors that have been in the family for thirty-plus years which later became the idea behind our “Marisol” halo. All little moments and gifts I wanted to honor when creating Divina Halos.

What is your favorite holiday activity?
I love getting to walk around and look at all the holiday decorations. There’s something absolutely magical about the transformation of our communities into a glittering winter wonderland made of ribbon and lights. Throw in a cup of Mexican hot chocolate and that’s a perfect holiday evening.

Something that you’re proud of as a creator?
We just celebrated one year of being in business and it was at this milestone that I was able to reflect on what was accomplished. Being able to see my dream grow and reach places around the globe was once thought and now a reality! Those were accomplishments but where my pride resides is in the divinas we’ve met along the way. Whether it was getting to make a halo for a bride-to-be or creating a memorial piece for a loved one, each halo had a story.  Having the movement of the divinas using their halos as physical tokens to remind themselves that they are the real living work of art. Receiving messages from them telling me how important their halo was to them and what it has done for them. I’ve felt the love of this beautiful community we’ve created together and I couldn’t be prouder. It couldn’t have been accomplished without the kind divinas who utilized their platforms to not only introduce our small shop but to genuinely support it.
