Carol studied Art and Design at the Carine College of TAFE and the Claremont School of Art in Perth Western Australia from 1991 to 1995. She was born in Melbourne, Victoria and now currently resides in Perth, Western Australia.
Carols influences come from the grandeur of the vast Australian landscape over which she flies on a regular basis, she is constantly amazed at the imagery of the textures, colours and rugged formations created over time in this very ancient land.
She conveys this in an abstract way using mixed media, acrylic and ochre's collected from her trips to the Kimberley and Pilbara regions of Western Australia. The richness of colour and texture that the ochre's provide not only lend to the layers of paint and tone, but of the layering of time in which these granules have been formed over the centuries which she feels gives a strong presence and place to her works.
In Australia Carol has exhibited in numerous group shows in Perth, the Metamorphoses Gallery in Willeton W.A. Beth Hulme Gallery in Melbourne, Victoria and the Global Gallery in Paddington Sydney N.S.W. A solo exhibition was held at the Perth Concert Hall in St Georges Terrace, Perth W.A. She currently works out of Robertson Park Artists Studio in Fitzgerald St. North Perth.
Internationally Carol has exhibited widely in group shows with Trevisan International Art, in the Atenao Gallery, Madrid, Spain, the Kenny Gallery, Galway, Ireland, Galleria De'Marchi Bologna, Italy, Estense Castle Ferrara, Italy and the Florence Biennale, Italy.
In 2015 she exhibited at the Chianciano Biennale in Tuscany and with Trevisan International Art and was awarded a prize for "Excellence" at the Gallery De"Marchi, Bologna, Italy in the show titled "Little Treasures"
Carols works can be found in the private and corporate collections.
