Caroline Wayne (b. 1984) is a fiber artist living in Brooklyn, New York. Wayne is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

"I use meticulous hand-sewn beadwork to illustrate autobiographical stories of trauma, sexuality, intimacy, and growth in an attempt to communicate through craftsmanship. Detailed beading and cyclical patterning emphasize the consistent labor in the repetitive motion of hand-sewing, that which mirrors the emotional and psychic labor expended in order to manage the suffering a body can accumulate over time. Whether illustrating symbols of childhood abuse, its resultant patterns of thought and behavior, or the process of healing, my sculptures translate the life experience of a survivor of complex trauma through the lens of glittering beadwork, rendering a harrowing reality easier to digest."
