Biography

Artworks

Carol has worked in oils for many years but has recently returned to watercolor, her “first love”. Her current show will feature both media. She says she is “continually intrigued with the beautiful, sometimes surprising, things that happen when color and water mingle on my palette and paper.” Carol credits her work, which has received numerous ribbons, including two “Best of Show”, to a “God-given talent… He has seen fit to give me an ability to create and I strive to use that ability to reflect His workmanship and bring pleasure to others.” Carol is a wife, mother of two, and grandmother of five.  Her most pleasurable and meaningful artistic endeavor, she says, “has been sharing a love of line and color with my two granddaughters who both show raw talent and creativity that far exceeds mine. The accolades of which I am most proud are the ones they have received through school art projects and their local art community.”
