Texture, pattern and light are the key elements in Carol’s paintings. By changing any of these factors a painting can be constantly
evolving with little variation in the actual subject matter. The introduction of a specific texture or pattern can define the mood of the painting. Add light to the equation and a simple composition can have many different facets. Although trained in drawing/paintin , Carol’s year studying embroidery and weaving means she often integrates both disciplines into her work taking it in any number of different directions.
