Caroline is the author and illustrator of Surprise! (Scholastic, 2018). It is a picture book about how hart it is to make friends. She says it is partly inspired by her online dating experience in NYC.
These days Caroline draws her inspiration from the artists at Spindleworks. They're teaching her about embroidery and fiber arts. One day she hopes to return the favor by showing them some watercolor techniques and working on some audio projects together with them. She enjoys bringing art into the community and sharing her skills in audio and visual arts with anyone who’s curious to learn. And, as she continues to make Maine her home, she hopes to find ways to get involved in art-related community projects here in her new home.
To follow her latest projects/updates, find her on Instagram for what she humorously calls "a not-so-accurate representation of her life." And, these are links to the two women whose art and work she admires: Eleanor Davis and Jillian Tamaki.
