I am not an MGAL Star Artist
For Carol, paintings begin when she sees something and thinks, “Wow! I’d like to capture that in a painting.” Her goal is to interpret and present the “Wows!” of natural worlds without being too literal. Her focus is on the essence, irony, contradiction or odd linkage that she sees in the world around her. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Carol lived much of her life in rural areas from Twinsburg, OH to Aripeka, FL to Shelby Forest, TN. Her professional life evolved from elementary school teacher, to teacher educator, to educational anthropologist. Observations of natural and cultural settings inspire her paintings.
In 2000, upon retiring from The University of Memphis, she began studying watercolor because of its unique color properties and control challenges. Carol studies with Memphis master watercolorist, Fred Rawlinson at his Memphis Atelier. She also studied with the master watercolorists at the Springmaid Beach Water Media Workshops in Myrtle Beach, SC and with Fran Larsen at her Santa Fe, NM studio.
Carol is a member of the Bartlett Art Association and the Memphis Germantown Art League. She competes in regional, state and local competitions. Her work has appeared on the cover of JAVMA, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA).
