Carolyn grew up in Dallas where her love for whimsical illustration began as a child. She earned a BA in Studio Art and Art History at Wake Forest University and was fortunate to experience art while traveling and working abroad as a curatorial assistant in galleries in Sydney, Australia. Painting has been a wonderful 20+ year-long ribbon of color, tying together many of her memories. Carolyn paints in her home studio, alongside two mini muses/budding artists. She enjoys giving back to many wonderful causes including Dwell with Dignity, LECPTA and DISD schools, Texas 4000 for Cancer, West Dallas Community School, Scottish Rite's Summer Colors, and Junior League of Dallas.
