Hello & welcome fellow art & design lovers! I am Carolyn Mackin, an abstract mixed-media artist who uses my intuition to create paintings that are filled with joy and meaning, and also look fabulous in your stylish home. I have a passion for interior design and think a lot about how my art will look holistically within your space. If you are interested learning more about my story and inspirations, click here.

Client Kelly Caiazzo's experience, in her words...

“Carolyn, thank you so much for creating such a beautiful custom painting for our home. It’s amazing to find someone so talented who is also so approachable.

Art is not our language, but you listened so carefully to us describe what we love about your work, then used that information to create a perfectly inspired piece. You went above and beyond to make the commission process enjoyable, starting with a home visit so our space could inform your canvas size and color choices, and then giving us options and working closely with us to continue developing the parts of the painting we loved most.

We will cherish this painting and the memories of working with you, from discussing teal over champagne to watching the final brush strokes via Facetime. An incredible experience, with truly magical results. Thank you.”

Art Stacks coming soon!

I am SO excited to be creating a series of sculptural works of art, called Art Stacks, which are stacks of 3 paintings attached together. They are a fun, unique and cool element to add to your bookshelf or coffee table. I am in the process of making 30 of them, and will release them soon.

Join my Collectors List and be privy to a secret pre-launch for my Art Stacks Collection. Want to get first dibbs on these?

I am so grateful that our paths have crossed, and I look forward to connecting more with you soon.

XOXO, Carolyn
