Caroline Wood is an artist and educator from Chicago, IL. She grew up reading books and exploring the backyard, spending hours observing insects and plants. She would carry this inquisitive spirit into her career; she studied History and Studio Art at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, where she wrote history papers about art and made art about history. In 2013, Caroline studied in St. Petersburg, Russia, where she developed the ideas for her senior thesis exhibition. In 2015, Caroline was selected for the Fifth-Year Emerging Artist residency at St. Olaf College, where she produced two bodies of work for exhibition. Caroline then moved to Minneapolis, where she worked as a teaching artist and as an employee of the Minneapolis Institute of Art. She is now back in Chicago and currently working towards her MFA in the Photography department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
