Karin Arruda was born in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil and became interested in art at an early age. Despite her passion for art, Karin’s career began in the field of veterinary medicine. During her time in college Karin’s deep personal connection to her artwork continued, and in 2002 she left her veterinary career to dedicate herself exclusively to her passion for art with paper.
After traveling across Brazil teaching her paper sculpting technique to over 3000 students, Karin launched online classes in English and Portuguese through her website to teach her technique. Her works have also been used to illustrate children’s books and magazine covers. Since 2012, Karin donated works to be auctioned for the pediatric ward of the National Cancer Institute, in Rio de Janeiro. A perpetual student of artistic knowledge, Karin continues to learn and always utilizes new materials and techniques to enrich her work and evolve as an artist.
“Disney’s characters have always been a passion in my life,” says Karin. “The high standards of quality that Disney puts into everything has taught me to always strive to do my best and never stop seeking perfection.” She considers the opportunity to create Disney artwork as the crowning achievement on her personal journey as an artist.
Bringing the beloved stories and characters to life for families and fans of all ages through innovative art products and experiences, Magical Memories featuring Disney Fine Art is the premier dealer of a diverse portfolio of limited edition giclees, serigraphs, mixed media prints and original paintings inspired by the rich artistic heritage of Disney. The leading gallery also features a wide selection of new and vintage animation-related collectibles and publications spanning the portfolio of all Disney animation studios.
