We interviewed the artist Livia Caruso who realized our new Totem Animals set, discover below her profile, her background and her work:
Hello Livia, can you introduce yourself?
I am Livia Caruso, aka Livia Capillotracte. I am 24 years old and I am an illustrator.
Can you tell us about your style ?
My style is very detailed and fine. I will mainly approach feminine, magical and even surrealist themes very inspired by esoteric references, my dreams...
Can you explain how the Totem Animals set was conceived?
I consider that we can have several totem animals insofar as we feel a particular connection with an animal, its energy can inspire us, guide us or simply comfort us. It is really in this idea that I created my models so that our animals accompany us at every moment.
However, I had so many possibilities that not all of them would fit in one board, so I chose the ones that inspired me at first. I also included some of my "signature" animals like fish or birds, different sizes and symbols so that everyone can find their happiness and make beautiful compositions!
I have a botanical oracle project, a fantasy novel illustration, Christmas cards in collaboration with another illustrator from Lyon, an online store project, and I won't mention them all because the list would be too long ^^ Anyway I would love to develop ephemeral tattooing and propose new things!
