"Each day provides a new opportunity to create something that speaks to me & to the people who buy, live with & use my art."

Caren Frost Olmsted has been the owner and principal of CFO Design for over fourteen years.  Her projects are wide and varied, and she loves it that way - large and small scale murals, corporate, educational, project management, and art direction.  Each day holds the promise of something different- new people, new art, new challenges.  Her works have appeared on national television and print media, as well as numerous galleries, schools, businesses and homes across the country.  Caren holds a degree in Theater Design from Bates College, and a degree in Art Education, from Appalachian State University, and holds a New Jersey State Teaching Certificate.  Prior to CFO Design, she worked for several years in professional theater as a Set and Lighting Designer, and four years as an Art Educator.

Caren is a member of, and teaches through Morris Arts and The Center for Contemporary Art.  She is the founding co-chair of ARTsee Open Studio Tour, and served as the Cultural Arts Chair on for the Parks and Recreation Committee of Bernards Township.  Her studio is in Basking Ridge, NJ, where she lives with her husband & two sons (who are her most spectacular creations).
