About the Artist


Caroline Brown is an award winning artist who currently enjoys working out of Washington DC, Baltimore, MD, and Napa, CA. She is a representational impressionist artist painting mainly in oils. The subject matter of her work is all-encompassing but her focus and foundation is the study from life. She will often paint on location visiting parks, or street corners and regularly practices painting portraits and figures from life. This practice informs her studio work to create greater depth and understanding when using photography.


She has studied with many accomplished artists including the notorious colorist Camille Przewodek, Robert Liberace, Lori Putnam, Johanna Harmon, and Mitch Baird. 

In addition to her career as an artist, Brown works as a surgical nurse in the Operating Room. Her training as a nurse has shaped her work ethic as an artist and she has been commissioned over the years to create lasting keepsakes for many of the Doctors and Nurses with whom she works.
