Artist Statement and CV - Carol

Carol's Artist Statement

The art of transformation has been an interest of mine since I was very young. My artwork is nature-influenced, intuitive, flowing, abstract expressionist. Photography, painting, writing and wearable art have provided me with a means of exploring the inner and outer world and their interconnections. This has been my life’s journey. I photograph with my outer eye, I paint with my inner eye, I write from my heart and I teach what I know.
