Painting answers my lifelong urge to render what I see around me into my art. My paintings represent the people I have met and the many places all over the world where I have lived and visited.

 I studied and received my BA in Fine Arts at the University of Arkansas. Here in Austin, Texas I paint with the Waterloo Watercolor Group. My paintings Joanna (sold) and Circus Fantasy (available) both won Merit Awards at Waterloo Watercolor Annual Shows.

I am in the late stages of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Although I have lost the ability to move and control much of my body, this summer I was able to complete a series of 4 paintings depicting my childhood memories of playing with my siblings and cousins on my grandparents’ farm ("Last Memories" series). My condition has progressed at such a rate that I have now painted my last watercolor and have begun to receive hospice care.

I hope you will enjoy viewing my work as much as I have creating it,


Carolyn was called away by our Heavenly Father on Sept. 15, 2014 at the age of 69.
