Caryn Friedlander

(American, born 1955)

Northwest artist Caryn Friedlander creates expressive abstract paintings. Her art is informed by the natural world, a fascination with water, her extensive garden, and the art materials themselves.

Friedlander was born in New York City and came to the Pacific Northwest in her early twenties, on a whim. She received a Master of Arts in East Asian art history (1987) and a Master of Fine Arts in painting and drawing (1991) from the University of Washington in Seattle. She lives and works in Bellingham, Northwestern Washington.
