Hi there! My name is Mayi Carles, and I’m a Panamanian artist + designer + crafter + owner of mayicarles.com, my little eco-friendly boutique on Etsy + creator of heartmade, a blog that celebrate all things handmade + share daily creative inspirations + grant behind the scenes access to my work as an artist + promote vintage goodies + show off amazing artists, crafters and designers + bring you awesome DIY projects + host giveaways + give helpful tips to running an indie business + many other fun stuff I’m super passionate about.
I studied art in Scuola Lorenzo de Medici in Florence, Italy; received a dual Bachelor degree in Communication Studies + Art Theory and Practice, with a minor in Art History from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois; and a Masters in Art in Visual and Critical Studies from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Illinois. My exhibition curriculum includes individual shows + artists collectives in both Illinois + Panama. I’m also Vice President + Image Director for Life Blends Inc., a natural juice company I helped found with my dad in 2003. In 2010, I was invited to join the Board of Director of the Bio Museum, designed by Frank Gehry and curated by Bruce Mau.
