About the Artist

Art has always been a central part of Carol’s life. Constantly drawing as a child, the passion to create something two dimensional has continued to this day, through oil and gouache. Carol currently lives in Santa Fe, NM and exhibits at Smilow Mathiesen Gallery on Canyon Road.

She graduated with a BA in Art through the University of California at Santa Barbara, with an emphasis in Painting, but has continued to study at various art institutions (Parsons NYC; Silvermine Artists Guild, CT; Rohaton Art Center, CT; Delaware College of Art & Design (DCAD), DE) throughout her career. She now teaches painting at DCAD (Continuing Education), has several private art students, and leads painting workshops in France twice a year. She also works as a self-employed graphic designer.

Carol has always been interested in France, the French landscape and French culture. She loves the fields and hilltop towns,and the strong clean lines and shapes they create. The past couple of years this influence has dominated her work. Her landscapes are a constant search for color, contrast, and shapes. Recently Carol has discovered the natural beauty of Lancaster County PA and Northern New Mexico, and is applying her French vocabulary to these new areas.

Another influence early on was of an artist whom she babysat for, and who lived across the street, in Santa Barbara: Priscella Bender Shore. She eventually became her favorite art teacher and mentor at the Santa Barbara Community College. Priscella’s work was of women in a swimming pools, reflecting and refracting light. They were both figurative and abstract. This images haunted Carol’s memories until she could recently recreate the swimming pool paintings herself.

In 2012, the Delaware Division of Arts (DDA) presented Carol with the Emerging Artist Grant, and in 2013 she received an Opportunity Grant from the DDA.

Recently Carol won Honorable Mention at the Maryland Federation of Art, in Annapolis, in their American Landscape Exhibition.
