About Carolyn Saunders

I have always been fascinated by how the universe and its materials inform us. The process of working in tandem with the elements of our planet is an artform in and of itself. Using naturally-derived materials, I attempt to interpret the beauty of our universe into physical form.

Carolyn Saunders was born and raised in Cape Breton, NS. She holds diplomas in Culinary Arts (2012), Hospitality Management (2015) and a certificate in Foundation Visual Arts (2019). She is currently attending NBCCD in the Ceramics diploma program where she is focusing on developing her skills as a potter and artist. Carolyn sits on the board of Connexion ARC as chair of the programming committee and co-chair of the fundraising committee. She works at the Lunar Rogue Pub as a bartender and server. Carolyn currently resides in Fredericton NB with her partner, and cat Judith.
