Caroline Mustard (and Teddy)

Since her earliest years growing up in the wilds of Cornwall in the Sout West of England, Caroline has been drawing and painting.

Her life during the swinging sixties in London earned her the ,  title "Babe of the Sixties" and if you search that name you might find her as Caroline Carter, pop singer and guitarist recording with Decca Records in the mid sixties under the guidance of her then manager and friend, Marianne Faithfull.  But that was a diversion — a moonlight from Art College in Brighton, now University of Brighton Faculty of Arts, to which she returned to graduate with a degree in Fine Art, Painting.

After working in London, she moved to Toronto where she raised a family, worked for a large advertising agency and did PR for non profits, she moved to Los Angeles to follow a career in art direction and scenic and faux painting,  finally migrating to the Bay Area.

Caroline now lives and works in the heart of Silicon Valley where she co-founded the Mobile Art Academy in 2013. — a hub for artists who use this medium, and sponsor of the annual Mobile Digital Art & Creativity Summit (mDAC) for the past 4 years.  Since adopting the iPad as her fine art canvas of choice, and the iPhone Plus as her sketchbook, she has held several successful local exhibitions of her work while while, at the same time becoming known as the leading educator in the mobile (iPad/iPhone) art medium, advising the Palo Alto Unified School District on ways to include this new art medium in regular art education in schools from Elementary upwards.

"After a lifetime of doing everything from art directing to marketing to scenic and faux painting I finally found my way back to my roots when I was given my first iPad and my son downloaded a new app called Paper 53." said Caroline. " It allowed me to reinvent myself as an artist andI am forever grateful to Steve Jobs and the folks around who made it possible to finger paint with light."
