Accepted to BAU Institute’s summer artist residency in Otranto, Italy! I’ll be sitting by the Adriatic sea in June, playing with incorporating fibers into my little intertidal paintings.




April 2015

I will be exhibiting at the Smith & Vallee Gallery in Edison, WA beginning April 4. The opening reception is Saturday, April 11 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.


August/September 2011

I will be exhibiting in the downstairs main gallery at Francine Seders in Seattle. The show opens August 19, and the reception will be on Sunday, August 21, from 2-4 pm. The series being exhibited is called the Little Jesse Bayou Series, which I have worked on since returning from the Louisiana Bayou country last winter. They are small, intimate recollections of this eerie and beautiful waterscape that I traveled deep into, in a small boat that a friend had.

December 2010

In a tale suitable for both adults and children, Caryn has published a small book, featuring the San Ignacio drawing series, on Blurb. In words and drawings, Caryn describes her travels to the Baja Sur breeding ground of the Eastern Pacific Gray Whale, where she was enchanted by their unusually curious and friendly behavior towards humans.
