Caroline grew up in West Chester, Pennsylvania. She received her BFA in Printmaking in 2001 from the Rhode Island School of Design. From 2001-2003, Caroline lived, studied, and taught printmaking and bookmaking at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts on the island Paros in Greece. She has shown in a number of galleries including the Artist’s House Gallery in Philadelphia, the Hard Castle Gallery in Delaware, the Shelburne Art Center in Vermont, the Yellow Springs Historical Society in Pennsylvania, the Metaxa Gallery in Paros, Greece, and most recently, the Ileana Viteri Gallery in Quito, Ecuador. Caroline currently lives and works in Quito, Ecuador with her husband and two children.
When encircled by the poetry of lines and tones occurring harmoniously in nature, I feel awed and small in the enormous expanse. I see this space not only as a location, but an inspired idea awaiting translation. The concept of being part of something larger compels the ideas and intentions in my work.
The inspiration for my artwork is the mid-Atlantic countryside and more recently, the mountains and clouds of Ecuador. My hope is that the images themselves have become something more universal. My landscape paintings and prints are meant to express a degree of ambiguity that provokes a sense of familiarity and serenity without presenting a specific location. I am attempting to share my world and give an understanding that these lines, shapes, and subtleties of tone bring me a sense of calm, peace, and awe. I do not wish to offer social discourse; I am simply trying to express beauty.
