Biography


An Artist Member of the Artists Association of Nantucket, Caroline shows her landscape, still life and abstract paintings on Nantucket Island and St.Louis, MO.  She studied Fine Art at the School for the Arts at Boston University.  Not quite ready to immerse into Fine Art, she worked to receive her Master of Arts in Teaching in Chicago, moved to The Big Apple, and became an elementary school teacher in New York City for over a decade.  During her time as a teacher, she extended herself into her design interests.
