What people are saying about my work

"Already in love with this. The packaging is beautiful and the artwork is so uniquely expressive in a way only Karina could create. I'm really amazed at the ability of this work to bring together so many different pains and present them in such a gentle and healing empowerment. There are so many golden nuggets in here I know I will be using. I feel extremely fortunate to have such a brilliant, strong, and talented artist and activist in my area!" - amy winkler

"I love this zine. Full of positive affirmations and quotations to do with healing. I found it very useful and have the pdf download on my phone now so I can read it on my commute. Thank you 💖 " - ellen welsh

"These zines are simply amazing. As I have struggled with many of the issues discussed in these beautiful works of art, I more than appreciate the artists language to discuss their own struggles. They were able to articulate the feelings that I have not been able to put into words. I also felt like someone else was living some of the things I had experienced, which really helped me understand these struggles. I am so thankful for these zines as I visit them every time I struggle, need a sense of community and want to feel the love. They are amazing!!! <3 Thank you so much for bravely discussing your feelings and experiences. It is so much appreciated!" - amanda strausser
