Carol is a self-taught artist, who has painted all her life. Born and raised in Manitoba, she was fascinated and inspired with the rugged beauty of Canada’s boreal forest. After several years living and working in Manitoba and later Ontario, she settled in Victoria and now it is the ocean that calls to her. The beauty of British Columbia provides a constant inspiration.
Carol paints primarily in acrylics making full use of their vibrant colours and fast drying properties to capture the emotion of the scene, always striving for a loose and more expressive style. Lately she has discovered that using a palette knife aids in achieving this goal. However, to her painting is always about learning – new techniques, effects, approaches, and having fun in the process.
