Often inspired by her extensive travels, Kennedy uses
photographs as a source for her practice. Kennedy is drawn to all
and adores the challenges, which come with experiencing new cultures,
landscapes, languages, people and art forms, reflecting on the places
that surround her- the everyday situations-both ordinary and the
Caroline Kennedy also has a strong interest in the
effects of reflected and
refracted light and how shadows may be cast according to the nature
source. Exploring how light bounces off the work, Kennedys
often read entirely through the shadows cast on the wall.

lists drawing on personal
histories and old family photographs, documenting and cataloguing
including houses she has lived in, cars she has driven, pets she
