Cara's work is described as atmospheric, meditative and evocative while alluding to landscape in minimal detail, keeping viewers interest in the subtle flux of tones and texture in her paintings.
"My artistic process is a fusion of traditional landscape painting studies with an intuitive approach in creating more contemporary meditative compositions. My explorations and study in various disciplines of printmaking such as drypoint, Ecoprints, monotype/monoprint have informed my painting and vice versa.
Many of my paintings and prints are influenced by chromesthesia.
The interpretation of Landscape is an infinite quest I must explore; deconstruct, refine, simplify, defy, blur, mark, scrape, saturate, desaturate... in essence, to paint the landscape in various and countless forms is to journal life in all it's tenderness and boldness, it's depth and light.
The paintings are open to interpretation and I encourage the viewer to create their own journey in finding personal significance in connection to the art."
Established is 2022, Cara founded and is the director of

a workshop program promoting and educating students on the techniques of cost effective, minimal equipment fine art printmaking in New England and abroad.
