|Carol's oil paintings, many of which have roots in pattern and decoration, are richly layered with a variety of mixed media including gold leaf, photo transfer and text. |
The artist loves the metaphoric meaning and poetic potential of simple objects.
The terror attacks of 9/11 propelled Carol to give up her business career to pursue a direction with more purpose and meaning - she chose to follow her long-time passion for art by learning to paint.
As she threw herself into art with an insatiable curiosity, she discovered a world way bigger than before.
Carol's enthusiasm and appreciation for life comes across in her work and has been recognized by many regional and national juried exhibitions, represented in galleries, awarded prizes, published and sold to public and private collections in the US and Europe.
