Water is an enduring presence in Carol Carter's watercolor and acrylic paintings. Having grown up in Florida, she sees water as an evocative backdrop, resonant in contrasts that illuminate the human condition. Using vibrant, saturated colors, she plays upon the dualities present in nature in images of swimmers, lush landscapes, insightful portraits and botanical studies.
Carol is a longtime resident of St. Louis, where she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Washington University. Long admired in the St. Louis area, she earned national recognition in 2002 when her work was featured on the cover of New American Paintings magazine. She stepped onto the international arts stage in 2002 with a solo exhibition in Guayaquil, Ecuador, sponsored by the U. S. Embassy.
