Carolyn has been in the art world for the past forty years and has been passing on her skills and knowledge to others for the past 30 plus. Throughout the years, Carolyn has attended many workshop-seminars by various well-known artists and authors. Some of those more recent have been Brian Atyeo, Robert Burridge, Mike Svob, Linda Kemp and Stephen Quiller, each quite famous in their own fields. These workshops have broadened Carolyn’s experience with oil, acrylic and watercolour mediums and increased her knowledge in various techniques. These techniques have been passed onto Carolyn’s students in classes she gives throughout the year in her basement studio, Strokes of Colour.
Carolyn’s heritage of a sea family and the nature of the port Town of Pictou is shown in her art. Carolyn’s depictions of nature and of her surroundings are boldly displayed on canvas. Many of Carolyn’s scenes are studies in techniques and all are very soothing to the eye. Many of Carolyn’s artworks have been sold all over North America, and as far away as the United Kingdom and Australia. Carolyn’s art can be found in art galleries throughout Nova Scotia such as Gallery 215, Maitland and Art Rentals in Halifax. They can also be seen in very shops in Pictou and in her studi0 at 8 Irving Street, Pictou.
In recent years Carolyn has broadened her artistic talents to include fused glass ornaments, sun-catchers, jewellery and wall displays to a fridge. Carolyn also makes personal jewellery such as pendants and earrings. Because there is no real control over how the items react in the kiln, each and every one is a unique creation so that no two are exactly alike.
Carolyn invites all to her studio, Strokes of Colour, where she displays her creations. Carolyn offers classes in Watercolour, Acrylic, Oil and fused Glass. She also offers Childrens summer camps. Once a month Carolyn does a “Paint with Vino Night. Carolyn may be reached at her home at 8 Irving Street in Pictou or by phone at 902-485-5005. Carolyn’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
