Biography: Meet the Artist

Carol Whittaker

Carol has spent most of her life surrounded by the coastal landscapes that are reflected in her paintings of abstracted organic forms.

She explores sophisticated harmonies of colour in acrylic and mixed media to create a variety of seductive textural surfaces.

The result is work that has a strong sense of atmosphere and light.
