International Artist: Caroline Vis
Caroline Vis is a self-taught painter who grew up in the Netherlands. She had a pleasant childhood until the age of 11, when her father left the family. An alcoholic, abusive stepfather took his place. Because of all the sadness, abuse and pain she was confronted with in her late childhood, Caroline started to paint in the middle of the night. ?I used paint to put aside the pain and sadness to reach some happiness, and I did succeed.? She painted for years without having any idea of a future as an artist, simply using art as an outlet for her emotions. For the past few years, she has exhibited her work in galleries and auction houses throughout Europe and the United States. As Caroline states: ?For me, art is like breathing. It makes me feel very serene. It makes me feel alive! It gives me the feeling that I can live my life to the fullest.?
