Carol has been an artist and calligrapher for over 30 years. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, she explored all kinds of mediums like oils, pastels, acrylics, sculpture and even various kinds of crafts, Carol always came back to her love of the letter form and the use of watercolor to compliment the words.
After taking many courses from Cooper School of Art, classes and seminars on calligraphy with such recognized artists and calligraphers as Arthur Baker, Timothy Botts and Julian Waters, to name a few, she turned to developing her own style of calligraphy in early 1980.
After studying Advanced Calligraphy & Illumination with Gene Schwartz of Akron, she became a member in many local, national and international art guilds and organizations. In the 1980's she began doing as many as 26 art shows and exhibits, juried and nonjuried, every year and developed her own clientele.
While accumulating many awards and recognition's she began speaking and doing demonstrations on TV and to local groups. Since then, she has owned four Art Galleries, a Gift Shop and a Coffee Shop, all of which exhibited and sold her artwork.
Since her move to Arizona in 2003 Carol returned to painting on canvas in acrylics. Her love of the southwest and the love of flowers brought her painting into the forefront with bright vivid colors. Carol has been working from her studio at home until she returned to selling art in a local gallery.
