After a fulfilling career as a research scientist, closure of her DFO laboratory in 1997 led Carol to pursue her lifetime love of painting, and she graduated from NSCAD in 2005 with a major in Fine Art.
From the artist;
"As a biologist and an artist, I feel that we are very much part of nature, and I am very aware of the wonder of the world around us. I find that nature is always unexpected, and am fascinated by the constantly changing appearance of lakes, woods, brooks and fields. When I first came to Canada, I was stunned by the magnificent blaze of red maples, yellow aspens and golden tamaracks in the fall and the interlacing shadows on sparkling snow in winter. These contrast with the piercingly blue sky of sunny fall and winter days, which I rarely saw in England. The relatively short but sunny summer means that there is a colourful parade of flowers to paint in my garden."
