Allowing the paint to guide her, Cara's work spans a range of painting techniques from landscape to portraiture and abstract structure. She uses real life and photographs to translate various colors, moods and textures into an artistic experience. Motivated by emotional connections and relationships, her paintings often have an element of psychology and spiritually to them. 


Cara grew up on a farm in Newburyport, Massachusetts. She has over twenty-five years experience studying and working as an Artist.


Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, M.A. 2008
Middlebury College, Middlebury, VT, B.A. 1998

Her works can be found in Private commissions and collections in Manhattan, East Hamptons NY, throughout CT, Los Angeles CA, Boston MA, Palm Beach FL, Duxbury MA, and Weisimmer Switzerland. 

She has been accepted into The Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists, The Loft Artist Association, and The Rowayton Art Center Juried Show. She is also involved in several art organizations for Harvard Alumni.
