I was born on the first day of spring in South Carolina, which is how I got my name, Spring Carolina Whitaker. I am a self-taught artist who grew up on the beaches of New Jersey and in the deserts of southern California. Currently I reside at the Jersey Shore where I own my own photography business.
From the time I was a toddler art has had an immense impact on my life. I found my true passion at the age of 14 when I started using acrylics on canvas. In the darkest times of my life painting has been my light. When there was nothing else there was still art. My subject choice has always been animals. I love them, their eyes especially, there is a peacefulness that lies inside them. Animals know who they are, they aren't self conscious, they don't judge others; they are who they were born to be and it's beautiful. I enjoy using colors to play up the animals’ different personalities, and I give them names according to those personalities.
I’m a karma believer, nature lover, beach goer, flower picker, wine drinker, binge watcher, fur mama, & wifey. My hope is that a little bit of me resonates in each piece I paint.
