In 2009 Ms. Bonacci completed her Master's Degree in Philosophy at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. Her main philosophical interests are in aesthetics, ancient philosophy, existentialism, and phenomenology. During her undergraduate studies at Loyola College (now Loyola University Maryland) she worked as the assistant to Dr. Bettina Bergo in her translation of Emmanuel Levinas' God, Death, and Time. Carolyn also studied abroad both at Oxford University (Wadham College) in England and at Syracuse University in Florence, Italy. Her area of specialization in art history is in Italian late Medieval and early Renaissance art.

Ms. Bonacci's current passion is for knitting and the fiber arts but she has always had a deep interest and involvement with the arts at large. She believes art, like philosophy, is an activity that deepens our awareness of who we are, how we feel, and what we think about the world around us.
