My name is Barbara Amalia Carreño, also known as Micro Barbi. I was born and raised by a British mother and a Venezuelan father in the tropical weather of South America in Valencia,Venezuela, where I graduated as a Graphic Designer developing a passion for creating. furthermore I started designing and making hand made one-of-a-kind characters to express emotions and free my creative hands and mind. In 2010 I traveled to Barcelona-Spain to pursue my passion and dreams as a Toy-Artist. It was in Barcelona that I got to know many talented people who continue to inspire me every day. While living in Barcelona, I did many creative studies and participated in various collective and solo shows. I was also published in the book, “ The book of characters.” After four years in Spain, I decided to continue my journey as a toy artist in the United States, where I stablished roots in Philadelphia, PA. I enrolled at Drexel University to expand my skills, enrich my creative mind, and become a Product Designer.
