Carolyn began working as an artist because of a Christmas present of an easel and some oil paints from her husband. She has taken classes at SCAD and Spruill Center for the Arts. Several of her favorite instructors have been Thomas Key (drawing and painting), Pat Fiorello (watercolor painting and Plein Air painting, Sharon Weiss, painting with colored pencils), and Nan McGarity (oil painting).
She believes that art should make you smile, remind you of a special place or a special person, and make you dream.
Carolyn lives in Locust Grove with her husband and 2 four-legged family members, Jerry Lee and Zeena.
