Showing March & April
Raised in Northern Virginia in the vastly expanding Washington, D.C. suburbs, Carolyn is one of five children. She completed her first painting at the age of eleven of Piglet, Tigger, and Poo at a kitchen table setting. This would turn out to be her first and last painting for a very long time. In the early 1990’s, Carolyn joined her mother and her friend to paint once a week at a private art gallery called Us Too Studio in Fairfax, VA. She painted there on and off for about two years.
Inspiration can often come from surprising circumstances. Carolyn began painting again after re-entering the workforce and being inspired by the weekly flowers given to her by her husband, Andy.
In 2003, Andy retired and the couple moved fulltime to Clarksville, VA. The peacefulness and serenity that Carolyn felt, nestled in Clarksville with her husband, really set off her creativity and she continued to paint. Although she has parted with a few of her paintings, the bulk of her collection will be on display in the Robert F. Cage Gallery at The Prizery March 9, 2015 – April 26, 2015.
