Creating works of art is a compelling life force. It encompasses passion, spontaneity, intellect and self-discovery. My art is not politically sensitive or culturally eye-opening. It is simply meant to appeal to the senses and heighten the human experience.
Inspired by the ever changing elements and beauty in nature, I enjoy abstracting and reinventing familiar forms to create new images that strike a balance between imagination and reality. Employing multi-media techniques in oil, acrylic, ink and water color paint on a variety of surfaces, I use color as my primary focus to transmit energy, meaning and emotion in my art.
Born in the USA in 1948, Carol Carpenter is an award winning artist currently living and working in Columbia, Maryland.
