About the Artist

Caroline Brown graduated from the liberal arts college Skidmore with a B.S. in Studio Art.  Having completed many courses in the sciences, her favorite being a year of anatomy and physiology, she continued her education at New York University earning a B.S. in Nursing.

 

After graduation, Brown spent a year working as an artist for the mural company NS Studios working for notable artist Nancy Scheinman.  Working with a team of artists, Brown helped transform the halls and lobbies of Baltimore, Maryland charter schools into thought provoking, educational murals.

 

Today Brown works as a nurse in the General Operating Rooms at The Greater Baltimore Medical Center with some of Baltimore’s top rated surgeons.  Since beginning her career as a nurse she has successfully balanced dual careers as both an artist and a nurse.  She continues to grow and work as an artist, taking classes at The Zoll Studio and selling original and commissioned paintings to clients.  Over the summer she promoted and opened a successful Pop-Up Gallery in Baltimore selling several of her original paintings.

 

Her paintings of Baltimore have received recognition through the Maryland Federation of Art having won first place in the MFA’s juried show Stormy Weather 2019, and receiving honorable mention in the MFA’s juried show Strokes of Genius 2019.  Her plein air paintings of Baltimore won Best Monument Painting and the People’s Choice Award in the Mount Vernon Plein Air Juried Show 2019.
