Spot-on, detailed, and flattering!
The portrait Caroline painted of me is spot-on, detailed, and flattering. What I like most about it is the way she was able to capture my distinct features. Caroline's skills are making others feel comfortable in their own skin and capturing natural beauty. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.
Practical and inspiring!
I would heartily recommend this podcast to anyone at any stage on their artistic journey! Caroline brings wisdom, experience, compassion, and great business sense to each episode and her guests are all interesting and inspiring. If you consider yourself an artist at any capacity or even if you’re a little afraid to claim that title, this podcast is for you.
Her Talents Are Remarkable
I have the great fortune to know one of the people whose portrait Caroline painted. The painting captures her skin tones, hair color, and her facial features amazingly. Even if I didn’t know her I truly feel I would recognize her in the street should I pass her, it is that good. Caroline did an exceptional job. Her talents are remarkable.
Amazed and Extremely Pleased
Upon receipt of the oil painting portrait of our fur baby Nika, we were amazed and extremely pleased with Cara's overall detail and quality of the overall portrait right down to the darker color on 2 of her whiskers. It is absolutely perfect and will be the best addition to my home office. Thank you Cara for your superb work in making Nika's portrait so real! We love it!
Competent, Professional, and Gifted
Cara is one of the most competent, professional, and gifted people I have ever worked with. Personable, capable, and goals oriented. She just makes it happen effortlessly. Any organization would find her a significant contributor and value-added.

A Skilled and Supportive Instructor
Cara is both a skilled and supportive instructor...Audrey and I both credit Cara's early support and guidance with Audrey's success in the art world ... When asked to write a freshman essay about an artist that inspired her, Audrey chose not Banksy or Picasso, but Cara. She has helped my daughter accomplish her dreams, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Can’t Wait to Hear More of Her Interviews
Talking to Caroline on her podcast was such a pleasure. She put me at ease right away and asked meaningful questions — even some I never considered before. I had so much fun telling my whole painting story, and talking about the things that truly interest me about painting. I wish her well in her own journey — and can’t wait to hear more of her interviews.
