Artist’s Bio: Carol has served as the curator for the Oak Street Gallery for over 10 years, being actively involved in recruiting new artists to display their art each month, changing out the artwork on the walls from one month to the next, and establishing a relationship with the various local artists who show their work here.
We are pleased to show her multi-medium works during the month of August, including metal work, watercolor, mixed-media and more. Her artistic talents are naturally cultivated, as she only took one college art class as a freshman, and was discouraged, because she never felt that her work measured up to others.
While in college at the University of Puget Sound, Carol's talents led others to ask her to design their dorm rooms. She went on to a nursing career, married her husband Spence, and they started raising their children. They spent 5 years in Belgium with Spence's career, and have both been heavily involved in helping refugees settle here in Asheville, as well as in other cities where they were living. In later years, her friend Carol Bomer got her interested in painting once again, and she says she enjoys it because it "carries me away from time and my own troubles."
