Caroline's watercolors have been written about by Nancy Wellard, writer for the Island Packet, Hilton Head Island, SC.  She writes:  "The current show at the Hilton Head Art League Gallery overflows with lush color  and oozes rich Southern visual tradition.  These recent watercolors charm, intrigue and delight because of the images she portrays, and the immediacy we sense in the style of her portrayal."     Selected Awards:
