An extensive background of traveling has been very inspiring for her and has a strong influence on her subject matter. She describes her work as “Impressionist in vibrant colors”. Throughout her career, she has painted plein air in Provence, France, Tuscany, Italy, Glacier National Park, Montana, Whidbey Island, Washington and many other locations around the U.S. She has exhibited her pastel paintings extensively in shows, at galleries and museums throughout Virginia, Maryland, Washington State and Puerto Rico.

In April 2012, Carol was awarded a prestigious Artist Residency for one month at “Les Amis de la Grande Vigne” in Dinan, France, the former home and studio of the famous French artist Yvonne Jean-Haffen. One of Carol’s paintings was selected for the museums permanent collection and will be in an exhibition in 2013 in France.
