Caroline Byrne received a BS degree in textiles and clothing from Cornell University in 1998. She floundered in the fashion industry for a while in New York City, and found some relief in creating accessories for boutiques, and teaching yarn spinning. Through her current art practice, she combines her love of materials with elaborate written narrative; allowing her to tell a story while poking fun at both abstraction and more specific trends of interactive art and relational aesthetics. Interest in classic comic parodies in film and literature have influenced her version of the everyday juxtaposed with the extraordinary. She received her MFA in Fiber from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in May, 2011.
