Carolyn Kami Loughlin
Carolyn is originally from San Francisco and Tiburon, California. While studying PEIS at UC Berkeley, she dabbled in color theory, painting and drawing. She ventured to Florence, Italy through a Syracuse University Art & Architecture program where she studied fine art at the former Fortman Art Studios in Via Ghibellina. After graduating from Cal, she returned for a business internship to Siena, Italy. She then immersed herself in the visual world of ESPRIT design and production in Florence and Milan. She and her husband, whom she met in Italy, have maintained a historic property on the South Shore where they have raised three children and family Wheaten Terriers. She has been a Trustee of the South Shore Conservatory for over 15 years, studies jazz piano, plays team tennis, skis and likes to travel and cook with family and friends.
Carolyn sees everything as a composition of shape, light and color. She enjoys capturing textural images, designs and patterns through the lens. Her work incorporates white space into her finished pieces. While she appreciates the technical aspects of photography, she is an image artist relying mostly on her gut and her eye. She is an award-winning juried gallery artist at the South Shore Art Center and other art organizations in the area. She contracts her photographic images with biotech and software firms in Cambridge and Boston.
