Caroline Lauvetz was born and raised in Stillwater, Oklahoma, U.S.A.
Caroline attended Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA, U.S.A., where she earned her B.F.A. in Fashion Design and Fibers. In Savannah, Caroline developed her practice using natural dyes, primarily Indigo. When settled, Caroline typically has at least one indigo vat in the corner of her studio that she maintains and uses as part of her daily practice.
Now graduating with her Master in Fashion Design - Knitwear, Caroline has decided to remain in London, U.K. feeling as if there is still so much left of this city to be explored. Through her time at the Royal College of Art, she has developed into a multidisciplinary artist exploring the commodification of nature. She has shifted her practice to preservation, conservation, and activism. Caroline believes that as a fashion designer, she must be incredibly aware of the industry's destruction it inflicts upon the earth. The majority of her childhood, when not in the ballet studio, was spent in nature. She feels an enormous responsibility for building kainos (a new newness) systems or processes to create a healthier industry. Caroline believes that we are all co-heirs to this earth, and as such, we must all do our part.
Beyond this, Caroline is beginning to develop her theology of making in accordance with her religion. She is beginning to discover the necessity of having her faith at the center of her life and, therefore, her work. While this shift in mindset does not affect the subject matter of her work, it does, however, significantly impact the methodologies she utilizes.
