About The Artist

Carolin (b. Boston, 1984) was granted a full time scholarship award and graduated with a B.F.A. Honours in Painting from The Savannah College of Art & Design. Here she was advanced to graduate level courses including those in illustration and concept art. She also completed part of her degree at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, and took part in a painting in residency in France. After graduating, she worked as an independent artist and illustrator in New Zealand for several years before leaving to further her study of classical drawing and painting at The Florence Academy of Art in Italy, where she was awarded a scholarship.

Carolin has been driven to paint, draw and write from a very young age. Her work has been selected finalist for The International ARC Salon and The ADAM Portrait Award, and exhibited in galleries in Europe and New Zealand, including a national tour with The New Zealand Portrait Gallery. Her two published books are housed in The New Zealand National Library heritage collections.

 

Carolin remained in Europe and works from her home and private studio south of the Taunus Mountains in Bad Homburg, and also teaches drawing and painting at The Academy of Fine Art Germany.
