TESTIMONIALS

Artist in Her Community

"Caroline Karp is such a talented artist. She uses her color and brush strokes to create intense emotion. The technique of her broad plains of color leads you into her work until you get lost. Working with Caroline has been a wonderful experience. I was thrilled when she joined the Safety Harbor Art Walk as an artist and a live artist for the day of the event. She always has beautiful engaging pieces and she has such a wonderful personality that always draws people in. I am so inspired by everything she does!!!!"

Artist Doing Collaborative Art Commissions

"We first met Caroline when our young son, Grant, started in her Early Childhood Class as a kindergartener. We quickly realized she was an excellent teacher but had not yet realized she was also an accomplished local artist. Towards the end of Grant’s kindergarten year, the school held a live auction fundraiser. It was here that we bid on (but did not win) a beautiful painted canvas created by Ms. Caroline and her 2018-2019 Early Childhood class which included our son. It was then that we learned of Ms. Caroline’s artistic talents and were able to view her other works on her website.

The idea came to us that we would love for Ms. Caroline to work together with Grant to create a one-of-a-kind painting that would be meaningful to just our family. After some conversations we chose a recent 2-week vacation to Costa Rica to be the central theme of the painting. This was Grant’s first out-of-the-country vacation and was filled with many wonderful and memorable experiences. The painting encompassed the adventures we had, the abundant natural beauty of the places we visited, and the amazing rainforest animals we saw during our trip.

Ms. Caroline came to our home and worked with Grant to create and paint the first stage of the piece. Grant really enjoyed being part of the process and offering suggestions and ideas for the painting.

The first stage of Grant working with Ms. Caroline was videotaped using time lapse photography and sent to us by Ms. Caroline. A great keepsake of the process that Grant really enjoyed. After completing the first stage with Grant, Ms. Caroline took the painting back to her studio. Over the next week, she transformed the canvas into a magical Costa Rican masterpiece.

Ms. Caroline took all of our many ideas (such as, a hanging bridge, treehouse, volcano, waterfall, tree frog, Mariposa butterfly, sloth and a pair of Toucans) and thoughtfully and artistically coalesced them all into a beautiful family memory.

We now have a truly unique piece of art. This painting will be a treasured piece of our home for decades to come. Thank you, Caroline!"

Art in Healthcare Settings To Help Others Heal

“Being in a hospital for our reasons isn’t always the happiest of experiences. But, as I was walking the halls, I saw this on our floor. It put a smile on my face. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing a smile with so many others.

I knew right away that this had to be your work. Number one, it brought a huge smile to my face as I remembered all the happy times we shared together and then knowing your work was in the hospital bringing joy and hope to others was beautiful; even if it only brought them peace at that moment… you definitely brought it to them with your talent.”

Yoga and Painting workshops
"My feelings were like a roller coaster slipping backwards that had derailed leaving me hanging on for life. The sounds in my mind were those of a screaming child that awakens from sleep only to hear footsteps of an unknown intruder climbing stairs toward the bedroom. Then - we moved through a short series of asana and breath. Clear instructions were offered by Caroline with permission to let go of the inner critic. We painted. A creative Spirit seeped inside of me. The sense of community began to taste like the salt of the ocean. There was a smell of wild eucalyptus as if we were traveling the Pacific Coast Highway through Big Sur, California. In the moment I found myself meditating with sounds of the sea. I've been told that grief comes in waves."

 
"Thank you for a wonderful experience. Looking forward to painting with you, Caroline."
