Carol was born and raised in Victoria, but moved to Vancouver in the mid seventies with her family. She has recently returned to live in the Comox Valley. While in Vancouver she studied and graduated from Emily Carr College of Art and Design (1993) and has shown regularly in the East Side Culture Crawl, the Drift and the Swarm. She has been working in mixed media and assemblage for over 30 years and enjoys manipulating and embellishing photos, drawings and other images with paints, quite often using symbolism to express her love of storytelling. Most of her paintings are about women and their place in and relationship with history, religion, magic and myth.
