Caroline Mecklin is well known for her strongly colored figurative paintings and life drawings. “...her work challenges us to really look at what Shakespeare called our mortal coil. Ultimately this means that Caroline challenges us to think about the ways we regard our most intimate selves.” D. Hoppe, Nuvo, 2007.


Caroline has exhibited and received recognition for her art regionally, nationally and internationally. 

After 32 years exhibiting and teaching art in California, Nebraska, North Dakota, and most recently, Indianapolis, IN., Caroline has returned to Minnesota and set up a studio in Lowertown, St. Paul in the Jax Building.
