CAROLINE MACFARLANE grew up in Kensington Market, developing a deep love for coffee, vintage clothes and graffiti at an early age. Her serious love for art began at the age of eleven when she saw a Keith Haring show at the Art Gallery of Ontario. She studied Art History at Queen’s University before heading to Europe and then to Australia, where she worked at Annandale Galleries in Sydney. Soon after, she taught English in Korea and traveled within Asia for a year. She recently completed her MA Art History degree at the University of Toronto and she now works at OCAD University. Caroline is happiest when taking photographs, listening to music with bass, biking, dancing and sipping hot drinks.
VANESSA NICHOLAS is a west-end girl with strong attachments to High Park and Queen’s Pasta in Bloor West Village. After graduating with her BFA degree from Queen’s University in 2007, she ran away to England where she earned her MA History of Art degree at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. Vanessa returned to Toronto in 2010 following an eight month stint in Italy working at the 53rd Venice Biennale. She splits her time between OCAD University and The Power Plant. She loves collage, the Bloomsbury Group, vases of flowers, Naomi Wolf, her Polaroid camera and macchiatos.
