Cara’s education includes degree studies in Music: Vocal Performance from Westminster Choir College, Princeton, NJ and Biology: Pre Med at Bridgewater State University, Bridgewater, MA.
Cara's work is described as atmospheric, meditative and evocative while alluding to landscape in minimal detail, keeping viewers interest in the subtle flux of tones and texture in her paintings.
"The interpretation of Landscape is an infinite quest I must explore; deconstruct, refine, simplify, defy, blur, mark, scrape, saturate, desaturate... in essence, to paint the landscape in various and countless forms is to journal life in all it's tenderness and boldness, it's depth and light...
The paintings are open to interpretation and I encourage the viewer to create their own journey
in finding personal significance in connection to the art."
