Carolyn Zerante


I am a Chicago based artist and illustrator exploring the world around me through color, texture, and shapes.

My work is inspired by:

Color, HUMOR, and play

I am available for brand collaborations, murals, and custom art.

A former florist, I am also available for 3D installations for special events, photo backdrops, and weddings. I love working with florals, wires, textiles, and reclaimed wood.

For 4 years I was owner of The Bread & Butterfly floral studio in Chicago. I produced over 100 weddings in that time and fell in love with floral design. I loved my couples but I was not in love with the wedding industry. I chose to close my business in August of 2017 to return to my roots as a fine artist where I have more freedom to explore different mediums and outlets.

I love snuggles with my dog Denzel Washington, exploring the world around me with food, and biking through my beautiful city of Chicago.
