Artist Background

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:

NEWS 2019

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.

The exhibition runs from 15 April – 17 May 2019 at The Art House WYONG.

Opening hours: 10.30 – 5.30 weekdays and during performance times. For enquiries contact 02 4335 1485 http://www.thearthousewyong.com

ECOARTS 2019 Wollongong

In April this year I attended the Ecoarts Conference in Wollongong. My works Time Shapes 3 and 4 were chosen for display. It was a an exciting, stimulating and eventful few days with papers, keynotes, dance, video, music, publications, theatre, visual art, sculpture and workshops. I met so many wonderful people including artists, university lecturers, TAFE personnel, community leaders, ecologists and many more all round interesting people too numerous to mention. I’m looking forward to the next one. Find Ecoarts on http://www.ecoartsaustralis.org

My works at the conference, sample art from workshops, display wall at conference opening.

Artists from the Arts Studios Cooperative have moved to our new home at the Bay Gallery. We’ve been here since March and have had very good responses to our new location.

We held our first exhibition in May and there were plenty of people, work sold, great music and a successful night for all.

About the Artist

Eco Arts Conference April 2019

Artist Background
Carolyn has created and developed many multi-arts performance works and visual creations employing a range of art techniques and elements, including video over the last 30 years.

Throughout this experience, she has also painted and experimented with visual arts media and taught in schools, the community and universities in Western Australia, New South Wales and the United States. Now painting and art making is Carolyn’s creative outlet and passion. Her work features in many exhibitions and private collections in Australia, the U.S.A and Canada and has been shown in numerous solo exhibitions in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney as well as group exhibitions primarily in Perth and some throughout Western Australia.

After a major move to the Central Coast of New South Wales from Perth W.A., Carolyn changed the focus of her works and evolved new colours and techniques in response to living in a new environment near Lake Tuggerah. Throughout her career she has had many solo and joint exhibitions and participated in many shared exhibitions at the Art Studios Gallery, The Art House Wyong and The Corner Gallery Stanmore and numerous others. The move of Art Studios Cooperative to the Bay Gallery in Ettalong has been a wonderful challenge and stimulus, working alongside fellow artists. The Bay Gallery has hosted exhibitions during 2019 and continues into 2020 with many new intiatives.

Her former studio was at Chittaway Point N.S.W.
