Carolyn Quinn-Hensley's teaching in the classroom follows several years of working as a designer and artist in Hawaii, California, Oregon, Texas and Colorado. Her experience in design includes work in the fields of graphic and interior design. In fine art, her concentration is on two- and three-dimensional objects. This includes commissions for large-scale, three-dimensional constructed paintings installed in hospitals, law firms, colleges, city offices and commercial builders.

Currently, Quinn-Hensley is concentrating on a mixed-media approach to drawing. She firmly believes that first-hand experiences in solving design challenges and working with individual clients, public organizations and private corporations offers a deeper and richer understanding of the relationship between classroom theory and applied art and design. Her background in art has also provided ongoing opportunities to work in the practice of fine art conservation.
