Caryn Coville

Caryn Coville is a New York-based artist who holds a B.F.A. from Rochester Institute of Technology. She finds inspiration from nature, her travels, and everyday objects. Her realistic paintings start with a line drawing and while using a heated drawing board, she begins the process of applying pigment. Working with a light touch, she slowly builds up and blends the color, sometimes adding up to twenty layers.

While Caryn is primarily a colored pencil artist, she has enjoyed extending her artistry into other mediums. For the past several years she has enjoyed East Asian brush painting.
