"Everyone who enters our home is drawn in by Carolyn's masterpiece. I have seen the infatuation unfold time and time again."- Debbie Linville
"From quiet times in the garden to dancing in the streets, I seek to capture the special moments in a woman's life." Each piece is created with handmade papers gathered from around the world.
Whether in her cozy upstairs studio or in the wide open air of the outdoors, Carolyn has her faithful studio asstistant, Maggie, by her side.
Whether it's sunlight filtering through a field of flowers, or wisdom in the eyes of a barnyard cow, all bring a smile and beckon for a closer look at Carolyn's dance of color and texture.
"As the personality of the painting emerges, I find myself smiling at my easel and forming a story about the subject, whether it's a bear, a bouquet, or a tale of a tree," says Carolyn. "Collectors nationwide get a kick out of sharing the name and story of their paintings with others."
Carolyn flourishes on large canvases, where she feels the freedom and space to become one with her with her subject, paint and palette knife.
