Laurie and Caroline Hart
Caroline and Laurie Hart, partners in life and work, residents of Winter Haven, Florida since 2019 having moved from Massachusetts, and full time artists since 2021.
Caroline studied art in England, taking many college courses from the history of art, portraiture, graphic design, and photography.
“My first love was always art; from the youngest age I would spend hours engrossed in any form I could put my hands on. As I got older, I revered the impressionists, I especially admired the French artist, Claude Monet. I absolutely loved visiting his exquisite house and gardens in Giverny, France, and saw for myself why he was so inspired by their outstanding beauty.” Explains Caroline.
Laurie is a creative soul, her talent shined through for fourteen years as a professional wedding photographer, capturing not only the love but the details to tell the story. “My once hobby of reviving old wood has flourished into a full time artist. I consider my self a colorist, because picking the perfect color palette, makes for a beautiful piece of art. ” Says Laurie.
Together they hit upon the idea “HART ART” inspired by the places and things they love from life experiences. Combining their talents to create unique, handcrafted pieces of art. It truly is a labor of love from the Hart's.

opportunity to meet and talk to art lovers, who have embraced our style." Laurie explains.
