Caroline James

Caroline came to rest on Hornby Island after a peripatetic existence of moving basic necessities and studio contents between housesitting arrangements around B.C. for five years. Her abstract narrative oil paintings are intensely lively, joyful and colorful, reflecting the humour, grace and gratitude she feels in her everyday living. Caroline obtained her M.F.A. from the University of Saskatchewan where she was nominated for the Governor General's Award and received the Graduate Thesis Award for Arts and Humanities. She is a prolific painter represented by seven galleries across Canada and the U.S. and also teaches highly acclaimed workshops in "Free Expression Painting" throughout B.C.

Galleries include: (see web site to get complete listing)
Waterworks Gallery, Friday Harbour, U.S.A
Darrell Bell Gallery, Saskatoon
