Caryl Melnick was born and raised in Yonkers, NY. Her love of art began when she was a child. She found nothing was quite as satisfying as a new box of 64 crayons!
Fast forward to the present; Caryl lives in Hillburn, NY, a suburb of NYC. Here is where she decided that it was time for her to formally study visual art. After going part time to Rockland Community College, she quit her job and she is currently attending Purchase College where she is pursuing a BS in the Visual Arts.
Her focus is on animation but she works in a wide variety of mediums. Animals, women and nature are recurring themes in her work. As a student, Caryl is still exploring. She does not place any restrictions on herself, but instead is open to all mediums and subject matter. She feels that the possibilities, for new content and a unique way to present it, are endless.
