Estrellita Carrillo

b. 1980

Lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Estrellita Carrillo, daughter of well-known santero, Charlie Carrillo, worked at Tamarind as part of a special project called Shared Traditions. Many artists who work in the traditional medium of santero wood carving are passing these traditions on to their children. We invited several santero artists, along with a child, to make lithographs. Normally working in three dimensions, the artists, young and older, were given an opportunity to explore the two-dimensional world of lithography.
