Carol grew up in Southern California and moved to Hawaii where she earned an art degree. She later moved to Louisiana for a short stop at graduate school. She ended up staying in Louisiana for 30 years working as a licensed landscape architect. She was very happy to move West and settle in the village of Placitas when she and husband Paul retired. She now makes frequent visits to the charming town of Jemez Springs which inspires her artwork.
Carol’s painting goal is to reflect the beauty of light and color as it plays across an animal or landscape. Her current technique to begin a painting is to cover the entire canvas with black gesso. The black often shows through as outlines similar to her linocut prints or the look of stained glass.
