Caroline Self is a contemporary, expressionist, abstract artist, inspired by the vivid paint colors and textures made famous by Vincent Van Gogh, the grittiness of graffitti, and the unique abstractness of paintings by Wassily Kandinsky, and Willem de Kooning. Caroline’s passion blends color and texture into a poetry of fluidity, tension, and/ or juxtaposition. Caroline's art is intended to be reflective and dare the viewer to look further. She has painted as long as she can remember, and her paintings have found homes from coast to coast. Most recently, her painting That's Life won a purchase award at the 41 Lyndon House Arts Center Exhibition juried by Jock Reynolds, Director for the Yale University Art Gallery.
Caroline was the Art Education Program Specialist at The Lyndon House Arts Center in Athens, Georgia for just shy of nine years before moving back into the Charleston area with her husband Ahren. Caroline has two wonderful children: Chad Schott, and Chelsea Schott and is originally from Fayetteville, North Carolina.
