Hi there I’m Caroline!


Creating portraits has long been a passion of mine. Illustrating timeless drawings of children, loved ones, homes and beloved pets is such a privilege! If you are looking for a colorful portrait to add to your gallery wall and cherish for generations, you’re in the right place!


Graduating from the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!) with a BFA in studio art, I packed up the lessons from my years of academic visual arts training and moved to Birmingham, Alabama with my husband in 2014. Since then I have continued to explore and develop a whimsical style full of color and gesture. I currently create with fine art markers, ink, graphite, colored pencil and watercolor. All works are drawn on archival bristol board or watercolor paper, and come with a basic white mat ready to frame. I am so grateful for the all of the opportunities I've been given over the past several years to create commissioned portraits! 


Five fun facts about me:

When I grow up I want to be a clergy (wo)man/ investigator who solves crime like Father Brown.

I’m an INFJ and Enneagram 5 (investigator) with a strong 4 (individualist) wing.

I secretly/not so secretly love Little House on the Prairie reruns.

My super power is folding fitted sheets.

I am a new mom through foster care to the most amazing baby girl! She is a lifelong dream come true
