Caroline Watson is an artist whose multicultural experiences and artistic inspiration come from travels to Mexico, Canada, Uganda, and parts of the Caribbean. The intercultural exchanges that have most influenced her artwork have been with the remote villages of Sembabule, Nebbi, and Pakwach in Uganda, Africa.
She primarily uses acrylics and concrete, to give her abstract paintings a unique tactile quality. She works intuitively to explore color, movement, form and layering elements. Each painting is an illustration of experiences, time and the exploration of a solitary moment.

Transitional (by Caroline Watson)
I want to tell a story influenced by the environment and culture around me.
I do not want to overly constrain the direction of the project but allow the project to evolve and grow during my stay.
I will continue an emphasis on the faces and figures and experiment with incorporating a variety of colors and tones into the work.
