About Caryn Owen

As a passionate artist and scientist, I have devoted my life to studying both marine biology and artistic expression. Although these topics may seem mutually exclusive, I have spent years blending both of my passions. Over the past decade, I created abstract art while simultaneously balancing motherhood and my career as a marine biology professor.

In 2014, I chose to leave marine biology behind to predominately focus on my art, design and my house full of boys (my husband, two sons, and our male pit bull!) In 2015, I launched House of Boys Art + Design to sell my abstract contemporary art inspired by the beachy modern vibe of Santa Cruz
