Abstract painter Caroline O’Callaghan, has always had a passion for the world of art and design. She studied colors and painting at the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) and started her career at House Beautiful magazine.
She further expanded her design education through her experience working at a boutique interior design firm on Madison Avenue in New York City.
This combination of work and education influenced O’Callaghan’s painting style. She is passionate about spacial design; it resonates with her and permeates her painting style. “Working in both interior and architectural design has exposed me to a form of spacial design that resonates with me and influences my work,” says O’Callaghan.
O’Callaghan paints with high-end acrylics and acrylic color washes on heavyweight cotton duck cloth, primed with acid-free titanium acrylic gesso. Her canvases are professionally stretched on 1.5″ kiln-dried wood frames with stretcher bars for extra support. Most of her designs can be transferred to acrylic-primed canvas sheets, as well as 140 pound cold press durable cotton paper, for framing.
Caroline O’Callaghan’s paintings can be found in galleries and design shops throughout New York and Connecticut.
