Carol is relatively new to the art world but don’t let that deceive you. She is most definitely an emerging artist, primarily painting in oil. She has come a long way in the six years since she began taking lessons. Carol has studied weekly under some amazing local artists – Mary Lou McLagen of Pleasant Hill and Teddy Jackson. She has also taken private lessons and workshops with Tina Garrett and currently added watercolor classes. Carol has also taken workshops with Phil Schmidt, abstract artist Jilli Nel and several other well-known artists such as Romel de la Torre, Dennis Perrin, Nancy Medina and Katie Whipple, Pat Meyer and others.
Being an artist brings to light the beauty of nature. No tree or blade of grass goes unnoticed, each flower exudes unrealized
beauty, every stone or rock takes on a realization of texture or smoothness, each ray of light portrays an essence of magnificence in creativity, water has a renewed clarity with mirror images in each reflection. You cannot drive or walk to the end of the street without being aware of being encompassed by the beauty of color and light.
Carol has won several awards in the Cass County Art Fair including Best of Show and won the Dorothy Smith Memorial Award in Harrisonville. She has been Secretary of Summit Art and Pleasant Hill Art League and quite frequently displays her work in local businesses in Lee’s Summit and Pleasant Hill. Carol was a participant for her third year at Ward Parkway Mid-Winter Art Fair in 2018. She featured her new watercolor mixed media in this show.
Carol was raised in Australia and came to USA in 1972. She has a Bachelors’ degree in Business which she earned while working as a Court Administrator for the City of Lee’s Summit Municipal Court for 20 years and currently works for the Greenwood Municipal Court.
