Carla assists in design matters. She participates in the visual construction of Khyentse Foundation projects, where the main aim is to produce content that communicates graphically and beautifully.
Carla is a journalist, designer, and illustrator. Her work is very much linked to childhood. She spends much of her time drawing, and she is an author and illustrator of picture books. She also develops educational (and fun!) toys. She lived and studied for many years in Spain and is now based in Curitiba, Brazil, where she spends a lot of time drawing and playing with her little son Silvestre. She also collaborates with the Siddhartha’s Intent Brasil team as a designer.
I came to Buddhism through romance. I was tremendously in love with a boy who was a student of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and who attended the Chagdud Gonpa Buddhist Center in my city. Time passed, we got married, had a child, and I started attending retreats and listening to Chagdud Khadro’s teachings. When my husband died in 2017, following Rinpoche’s teachings became the only viable option for staying alive. Today it’s what keeps me on my toes, following the Buddhist path.
