We truly never tire of introducing you to wonderful artists here at Mintwood Home. For October, we're very excited to be featuring Caroline Boykin and a collection of paintings that are best described by the artist herself.
"My intent was to capture a feminine essence in this series. Gestural lines, color, and flora are a means to portray the grace of a woman." - Caroline Boykin
Caroline Reehl - Art Shop Feature

Caroline Reehl Boykin has always loved to create. Her childhood on the Alabama coast cultivated her enchantment with art and southern culture. Touches of this admiration of hospitality and southern grander are seen today through her work. 

A summer of studying figure drawing in Florence, Italy led Caroline to know that she wanted to become a full time artist. These dreams later came into fruition after earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Mississippi and a sold out senior thesis show. Caroline's focus was ceramics but she had a true passion for all mediums in art.

Today she lives and works in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband Will, bulldog Gus, and sweet baby girl, Leavie. Caroline's art work has been featured in various publications and is in homes all over the US. She creates in many mediums which all in some form represent internal strength and external beauty in women. Texture, color, functionality, and line quality are all important aspects in Caroline's expressive artwork.
