Carol cracks the whip.

Carol has lived in Miami, Chicago, Utah, New York City, Italy, Washington D.C. and various parts of Europe.  She received a degree in English Literature from University of Utah and has exhibited her photographs in galleries and restaurants throughout the state including the Salt Lake Art Center, Utah Museum of Fine Arts and Finch Lane Gallery.   She is a recipient of the Utah Arts Council Traveling Exhibit Award and has been published in national and local magazines. In the last few years, she has photographed Neapolitan street life in Italy, Gypsy bands in Belgrade and her daughters, as they negotiate through their equally colorful lives.

Throughout the years, Carol has been deeply involved in Utah’s art community.  She sat on the board for the Utah Gallery Association, pioneered the Artspace Artist’s Association and Artspace Gallery Stroll, and organized the Wild West Side Festival.  She has also spent many years working for large events such as Sundance Film Festival, Utah Arts Festival, 2002 Winter Olympics and Twilight Concert Series.  More recently, she has branched out into other art forms such as Taiko drumming with Kenshin Taiko Group, fire sword performance, dance and also helped manage the band Kan’Nal.

Carol has just completed a written and photographic series in CATALYST Magazine, which focuses on Goddesses from different mythologies.  You may find these at catalystmagazine.net (except for Goddess Kali who mysteriously disappeared).  In the near future she plans to produce Goddess necklaces that coincide with this series, a Goddess calendar and a new series with Catalyst.
