Caroline Henry

Since retirement 10 years ago from teaching, Caroline has focused on her artistic expressions including giving art lessons.

She has won several area awards for her art and is currently the featured artist at the Lodi Art Center.

She explains her September Gallery Show:

"The show developed when I had been scheduled to be featured artist and was thinking about how to make the show special. I will have my 75th birthday on Sept 26, so I decided to challenge myself to create 75 7" by 5" images using a variety of media. I finished in early August, so except for taking a week off for a road trip, August has been a marathon of framing and otherwise preparing for the show."

Caroline is available for special commissions.
