Caroline studied visual art and music at the State University of New York, at Purchase, from where she graduated in 1981 with a degree in literature. She was fortunate enough to study visual arts with some very gifted teachers there, and one in particular, Antonio Frasconi, a printmaker, became a mentor to me. Caroline currently studies at Rockland Center for the Arts with several teachers, but Paula Madawick, a well-known colored pencil artist, has been especially important to me. She has had a great influence on my work.
Caroline has been drawing all her life, and she likes to think that in drawing, by focusing so intently on one image, she is pulled into the world of that image, and thereby also pulled under and into the current of creativity and imagination. Through communicating the essence of whatever she is drawing, through her hand and eye, she feels that she enlarges her understanding of the visible world around her and of herself. Caroline likes to feel “pulled under” to where she can commune directly with what she is drawing. When someone views Caroline’s work, she hopes to elicit a feeling, a response, to the image.
