Carol answers some questions about her artwork and inspiration....
1. When did you discover your passion for art?
I can't remember ever NOT being passionate about art--I drew, painted, photographed,sculpted, and did fiber work throughout my entire life. My most recent passion was sparked in 2010 on a trip to Sweden. My sister gave us a small digital camera to take on the trip, and I fell absolutely in love with the intense colors and light of the northern latitudes. I've been seriously practicing photography ever since.
2. What do you love most about your media?
I love the accessibility and flexibility of the digital format. Digital cameras are ubiquitous, and editing software makes the possibilities for creative expression limitless.
3. Where do you find your inspiration for your art?
Mainly in nature. I love shapes and patterns, and am obsessed by color and light.
4. What do you like most about becoming a member of Orchard Artworks?
The opportunity to share my work with a wider audience, while having the chance to belong to a community of artists. It's so important not to work in isolation. I hope to get to know some 'kindred spirits' there.
