Carolina Saiz

Carolina believes the best thing about a map is that they are infinite, they help us to situate ourselves and to understand the spaces we live in. Based in Seville, Carolina likes to immerse herself in a location and study each place so her minimalist and geometric maps are useful, realistic as well as visually beautiful.

Carolina Saiz Biography

My family originates from various parts of Spain (Andalusia, Madrid and Aragon) but I was born in Huelva, a small town on the coast of Andalusia, very close to Portugal.

Although my family never introduced me to Andalusian folklore, I grew up surrounded by it and as an adult I started to value it and become more interested in my roots.

After 15 years living and working in Madrid I felt more and more the need to return to my homeland, so in 2021 I moved to Seville. This desire to return was also what prompted the beginning of my first illustrated maps, where I wanted to portray my city and learn more about where I came from.
