Artist Statement:

Carolyn works primarily in oil on canvas. She works in a loose, impressionistic style blending harmonious color combinations with simplicity of design. Allowing the eye to move around the canvas through line, shape and color is part of her style rather than portraying an exact representation of an object or landscape. While home is the Delaware shore where her work is inspired by the color changes in the ocean and the setting sun on the bays, in recent years she and her husband are living part of the year in Charleston SC. This has brought new inspiration. It is easy to be captivated by the light and color of Charleston and the surrounding low country.
