Two years after receiving her Masters, Caryn returned to the University to earn her MFA in Painting and Drawing (in 1991). She was represented by Francine Seders Gallery from 1996 until it closed in 2013. She currently shows at Smith & Vallee Gallery in Edison, WA. Her work is included in a number of public collections, including The New York Public Library, Swedish Hospital, Washington State University, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Caryn’s art is informed by the natural world (particularly her ongoing fascination with water), her extensive garden, and the materials themselves. She lives in Bellingham Washington, with her husband, two cats, and approximately fourteen chickens.
