Carolyn Cole finds her voice within the rich traditions of abstraction and creates a cohesive body of work that translates into a language of intense color, sumptuous textures, and organic compositions. Her forms are instinctually achieved through the process of applying multiple layers of pigment, and her textured surfaces result from this process. Her paintings have been exhibited and collected all over the world. She spent ten years as an artist in New York City, where she exhibited extensively before settling back into the Northwest in 1991. She is represented by art galleries in Chicago, Palm Desert, Santa Fe, and Carmel.
