Hi! I'm a Miami girl who moved to Gainesville in 2016 and have fallen in love with this city ever since! I graduated from Santa Fe College with my Associates in Fine Art and began working at PWAT soon after. I've always been an artistic person with my favorite mediums being graphite and colored pencils growing up. It wasn't until I began working at PWAT that I began to love acrylic painting. Besides my love for art, I absolutely love animals! In addition to PWAT I am a freelance pet portrait artist and care giver. I look forward to meeting and painting with you in the studio! Cheers!

Hi, I'm Caroline! Growing up in Florida, I was captivated by the ocean's beauty. Swimming, boating, and exploring the shore fueled my passion for capturing the interplay of light and color. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Florida, I've earned national recognition for my work in oil, watercolor, and acrylic. My art focuses on human figures in water, aiming to convey both realism and emotion. I currently work as a gallery represented fine artist and a Display Artist for retail spaces along with my work at Painting with a Twist! I love all things painting and I cannot wait to paint with you!

Currently, I attend the University of Florida in hopes to graduate with a degree in Criminology with minors in Digital Arts and Sciences and Art History. Some fun facts about me include: I am left-handed, I am a cancer, and I love pottery! In my hometown of West Palm Beach, I work at a pottery studio, and with my employment, my passion for the arts has grown tremendously!

I am thrilled to be able to share the joys of art with everyone who walks through the door! I have been an artist forever, in one form or another. I started with dance and then theater, the visual art was only for myself as a therapy and to give me something to do with all this energy. It wasn't until later in life that I started to pursue it more seriously. Since then, I have done lots of disc golf designs for tournaments and businesses, some of which had a world stage. I have also sold quite a few paintings. I am grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way and am excited for more. Hope to paint with you soon!
