About the Artist

Caroline Brown pursues dual careers as both an artist and a nurse.  She graduated from Skidmore College with a Bachelor of Science in Art in 2011 and from New York University School of Nursing with a Bachelor of Science in 2013.  After completing her education, Brown worked as a mural artist for NS Studios, transforming the halls and lobbies of Baltimore, Maryland charter schools into thought provoking, educational murals.  She began her nursing career in 2015 to work as an operating room nurse where she would find herself sketching the surgical procedures from life when she had a free moment from her nursing duties.  She has sold work through exhibitions and regularly takes commissions. 


Growing up on the east coast by the water and living in major cities such as New York City, San Francisco, Baltimore and Washington D.C., has had a major influence on Brown’s work.  She is often drawn to water scenes that remind her of trips to the ocean and the nostalgia of spending a carefree day at the pool, yet she is also enamored with the rush of a cityscape.  Her work seeks to capture the endless mystery that lies beneath the ripples of the water and behind a city’s walls.
