about the artist
My love of nature and abstraction find a happy union in the painting of landscapes. I want my paintings to capture the essence of the coastal plain and surrounding rustic area of South Texas. I challenge myself to show the many changes of light, surface reflection in my world, the fleeting emotion, the still moments of beauty and quiet solitude.

Originally from River Falls, Wisconsin, Carol has been drawing and painting from a very young age. She attended UW-RF, and eventually graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Since moving to South Texas in 2005, she became enamored of the Texas coast, and though she had never been especially interested in landscape art, she realized the water and land had a lot to say to her. The dialogue between Carol and the coastal Texas has become deeper and deeper, she is constantly striving in finding the balance between the high art image and a broader accessible one, a direction that engages people from all walks of life to enjoy her paintings. Carol primarily exhibits her paintings in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, including the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art, Beyond Gallery, Galeria 409, and the McAllen Public Library. Carol is currently exhibiting eighteen paintings of local landscapes, titled “SCAPES”, at the McAllen Public Library, this summer, the months of June, July and August.
