Carolyn is a mature artist with many solo and joint exhibitions held during the last fifteen years. She works from her studio at Long Jetty and she also hangs many works in her Home Gallery. Carolyn’s practice in abstract painting, drawings and digital works reflects her past experience with dance and theatre. Currently she finds inspiration from the natural environment and the world around. Her art techniques explore the creative potential of the imagination and the subconscious, inviting viewers to see numerous images in the works. She employs various painting techniques in acrylic and oil paints, inks, pastels, charcoal and found objects. The rhythmic textures, marks and blends in the works express depth, power and movement. ‘Her unique blend of materials and techniques manifest in powerful statements about the nature of nature’. (David Giles Western Australian Artist & teacher.) You can also see Carolyn’s works at:

This year I have been especially interested in making work based around the environment and nature. The works centre on vegetation and ecology and weather based events. Some are painted and my tree and lake series are digital works sourced from photographs of my paintings and other photos. Exhibitions I’ve been involved in over the last five years have included works with these themes.
Exhibition at the Art House Wyong
With two other like-minded artists I participated in an exhibition at The Art House Theatre foyer, a wonderful large open space. It was a memorable month-long exhibition across 12 theatre shows, many visitors and great feedback.
Three Ways of Seeing is an exhibition by three Central Coast artists that explores the beauty and disordered order of the natural world, reminiscent of places that are of personal significance to each artist. With over 70 works, the exhibition provided visitors many visual ideas to the Art House with a wide array of works to see and admire.
Left-Reflections Over Ourimbah Creek-60x60cm $580 Right- Sandstorm 100x1200cm oil on canvas $1500.

It was a an exciting, stimulating and eventful few days with papers, keynotes, dance, video, music, publications, theatre, visual art, sculpture and workshops.
