Carolin Prinn


Carolin graduated with a B.F.A. in Painting/Illustration with Honours on a full time scholarship award from The Savannah College of Art & Design, and went on to study classical drawing and painting at The Florence Academy of Art in Italy, where she was also awarded a scholarship. Her work has been a selected finalist for The A.R.C. Salon, The ADAM Portrait Award and The Parkin Drawing Prize. She has also published two illustrated books of her tales, held in New Zealand's National Libraries.

Carolin began drawing, painting and creating from a very young age. Born in Boston, she travelled frequently and later moved to her familial home of New Zealand before arriving in Europe. Carolin's early travels and interest in culture would inspire her future work. It sparked a love of tales and myths from other lands, and of recording who and what she encountered from life in numerous sketchbooks.

Today, Carolin works from her private studio in Bad Homburg and is a main instructor at The Academy of Fine Art Germany. Her visual work is a combination of working from life, personal reference, and the imagination, with an emphasis on symbolic storytelling. Her works can be found in collections in New Zealand, North America, and Europe.
