Carolyne was born in Chicago and raised on the family farm in the heart of Illinois. At a very early age her artistic nature was evident and was encouraged and nurtured by her artist mother. The brush on canvas is solely unique to this artist. Having developed a style of her own, Carolyne produces emotion coupled with different dimensions and realities. She is not limited by subject or size. As a result of much study and research over the past she has carved out an enviable reputation with her scenes of horses, people and garden settings. Carolyne has shown her work throughout the United States in major galleries and shows winning numerous Best of Show and People's Choice awards during 2003-2004 and 2005-2006. Her artwork has been published by Bruce McGaw Graphics and Leanin' Tree Publishers.
