About Me

My Background

My full name is Mary Caroline Johnson, but I like to go by Maroline because... why not? Born and raised in Houston, TX, I began my theatre career wanting to sing on the biggest stages I could. However, I discovered my love for all things backstage, very recently graduated and earned my BFA Theatre with an emphasis in Design at Texas Christian University, and relocated to Chicago, IL. I am predominantly a scenic painter and designer, but I have experience in all aspects of design and most aspects of production in theatre!

My favorite part about my work is when, after careful collaboration and decision making, our imaginations begin to turn into tangible objects that slowly come together to form a tiny, but powerful world.
