Caroline Merino is a young and upcoming artist originally from Fayetteville, North Carolina. She began taking private art lessons at the age of six and was earning from her art at 18 years of age after her artwork was displayed in a local coffee shop. Residents of Fayetteville can still watch Caroline speed painting at public and private events in the area.

As the daughter of an interracial marriage with a father in the military, she has a personal understanding of

CeCe’s family life and the storyline. She also helped to develop the look of CeCe’s character

by giving her the “pom pom hair” that Caroline had as a child.


As a fellow believer, she is always intentional about giving

“back to the Lord [through my] art because He’s the one who gave me the talent and passion for it.”


In the summer of 2017, Caroline self-published a children’s book, “Gracie’s Gift.”
