Caroline Kelley's practice is research-based and multi-disciplinary. Her work addresses themes like the subject of nature in literature and the visual arts, cultural geographies, and women’s autobiography, self-portraiture. She is drawn to the imperfect, the work as an ongoing process, a form of research, a story. Her materials tend to be ephemeral, reflecting their subject matter. Caroline has presented and exhibited work in galleries and museums in Europe, N. America and China and participated in international residencies at The Arctic Circle, Banff Centre for the Arts, Stiftelsen Kulturhuset USF, Artist Residency in Motherhood and the Santa Fe Art Institute for which she was awarded a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant. Caroline published a monograph with Peter Lang Oxford entitled Women Writing War: The Life-writing of the Algerian moudjahidate as part of the series, Studies in Contemporary Women's Writing, edited by Gill Rye, Professor Emeritus at the IMLR, School of Advanced Study, University of London, UK. From 2013 to 2014 she was a Fellow in Multi-Disciplinary Research at the Adrian Piper Research Archive Foundation (APRAF) in Berlin, DE.
Originally from southeastern Massachusetts (b. 1973), she lives with her husband and son in the Paris metropolitan area, France.
