Carolyn is a mixed media artist living in Waterloo, Ontario and a member of, and represented by the UpTown Gallery in Waterloo where her work is on display and for sale. Additional pieces of her art are on display in the gallery at Frames by Verne in Kitchener.
Carolyn is a mixed-media artist with a creative mind who loves to work with many mediums including acrylic paints & mediums, papers, metal, caulking, glass, textiles, wood and other items that excite her senses as an artist. When working on a piece, she assembles and creates 3D layers adding a variety of objects and textures to bring her thoughts and memories into physical reality.
A multi-year design program at Conestoga College primarily using wood as her media, plus a year of art classes with guidance of international teachers brought depth to her art.
“Time is one of the equalizers in society. Everyone on our earth has to live with the same amount of time in a year, a month, week, day, an hour, a minute and a second. We search for meaning in life and how to leave a positive legacy for future generations and this is where time and how we spend it is of importance. What we value is how we spend the time given to us.”
“For the past couple of years I have been creating a series of art pieces exploring time and its many facets. As I age, I realize that time flies by so quickly and is therefore a very precious commodity that I need to use judiciously in my art and other areas of my life.”
