Sheep Books and Other Sheep Stuff
Carolyn’s sheep series started with a painting retreat to a farm in central Pennsylvania in 2001. She went to paint cows but couldn’t take her eyes off the Jacob sheep, an ancient breed that dates back to biblical times. She found their curved horns, fluffy spotted coats, and spindly short legs incredibly captivating. They’ve become her primary source of imagery, allowing her to explore paint application, surface texture, composition, and color in a way that satisfies her.
This exhibit features artists’ books and is in conjunction with the Sheepscapes exhibit at the Coolidge Corner Library.
A resident of Marlboro, MA, Carolyn has exhibited in the New England area since 1990. She is an accomplished landscape and interior painter and also creates stylized sheep imagery. Having won many awards through the years, she has begun teaching her plein air printmaking process, gyotaku fish printing, and zen enso circles. Her work can be seen at Galatea Fine Art, Boston, MA, Gallery Twist in Lexington, MA, Hudson Art & Framing, Hudson, MA, and Lauren Clark Fine Art, Great Barrington, MA.
