For Carol, paintings begin when she sees something and thinks, “Wow, I’d like to capture that in a painting.” Observations of natural and cultural settings inspire her paintings. Her focus is on the essence, irony, contradiction, or odd linkage that she sees in the world around her.
Carol has lived much of her life in rural settings from Ohio to Florida to Shelby Forest, Tennessee. Her professional life evolved from elementary school teacher to educational anthropologist. She began studying watercolor after retirement, and she often exhibits with the Memphis Germantown Art League and the Bartlett Art Association.
