“I tap into feelings evoked from life — be it a relationship, an experience, music, my environment — and I use that as a foundation to begin… I build layers and I remove layers. It’s an organic process of letting the painting evolve on its own. I try to contain within the edges a history, an energy, a yearning, a secret, things that are hidden, seen and unseen that still leave parts of themselves, that still affect the whole.”

Caldwell’s mostly abstract, mixed media paintings capture the exuberance of an island bursting with color: the endless shades of green foliage, the magnificent variety of flowers, the amazing aqua-teal-turquoise water, the billowing clouds highlighted peach-pink with the last rays of sun, followed by the blue-purple-indigo of nightfall. They are made of layers of water-based paint, graphite, markers and scraps of paper, which add texture and evoke the feeling of experiences and relationships that are built over time.
