Carolyn is a native of Ohio and has a degree in graphic communication. Her painting career started as a child painting with oils. When she moved to St. Croix in 1996, she switched to watercolors. She was a member of The Palletteers, a group of plein aire artists, and her work was shown in a number of local art shows. She discovered her love of murals and has been painting them extensively here and throughout the United States. One of her favorite destinations is Open Arms Home for Children, in Komga, South Africa. She returned there five times to beautify every building on the campus. She will be returning in January 2024.
