Carol grew up around art. Her father was a psychiatrist and a painter who always had a painting set up in their den that he was working on.
“A highlight of my 5-year-old self was my father displaying my painting of a butterfly in one of his art shows in the park and me hiding behind a tree to spy on people looking at my painting.”
“I am in love with beautiful ambiguity, and to that end, I use in my mosaics elements from nature, man-made elements, words, symbols and leave it up to the viewer to decide for themselves what they're seeing. I love the glass for its vibrancy, the quality of light and color. I love that it's two dimensional and three dimensional at the same time. I love that the cuts aren't perfect. I wholly embrace the Japanese notion of Wabi Sabi, the idea of the beauty in imperfection. I love how small pieces come together to make a whole. I love painting with glass.”
Carol has a degree in performing arts, she has made award-winning films, and had a business for 10 years making and selling collage art. She also teaches “self-identified” art to adolescent girls to help them find their Super Powers.
