Caroline was born in Hamilton, Ontario and earned an advanced diploma in Textile Design from Sheridan College in 2015. She then traveled west to Calgary, Alberta to complete her BFA in Fiber at the Alberta College of Art and Design, graduating in 2017. Currently, Caroline resides in Calgary where she splits her time between the film industry and creating work in her textile studio.

As a multidisciplinary artist, Caroline explores her relationship to cloth and colour through dying, printing, weaving, and sewing. In her design work, she purposefully references Canadian climate, topography, local flora, fauna and the idea of the 'mystic north.' Her work challenges the process of creating a textile and calls the designer to incorporate sustainability and craftsmanship into a sensible, sought-after object. Her work can be valued for its material sensitivity, traditional techniques and modern aesthetic. While working with natural dyes, Caroline exhibits an ambition to increase sustainable literacy and practices in the fashion and textile industry.
