Hi there! I’m Caroline. I am a Bay Area-based textile artist and designer. In my zines, paintings, and garments I document and celebrate the public and private objects and moments that are often the subject of social media posts. Selfies are a validating force. We are often told that they are vain: self-indulgent; unnecessary. However, when faced with society’s overwhelming beauty standards, our choices are limited to vanity or hating our bodies, self-indulgence or self-loathing. Selfies, personal style, social media, and the cultivation of intimate spaces becomes absolutely necessary for a positive sense of self.
