Carol Ann Clayton
Southern Landscape Painter
Carol captures the dynamic awe-inspiring vistas of the mountains and landscapes she paints. Her painterly and often impressionist depictions of light and color in the earth, sky, clouds, mountains, water and flowers are life affirming and sometimes dream like in effect. She has a reverence for nature and love of the outdoors.
The artist paints with oil paints and soft pastels. Her practiced technique conveys a sense of immediacy and harmony that we feel with our natural environment. She applies the strengths of her medium to achieve rich velvety surfaces and crystal clear vibrant hues. Her application is confident and full of bravado.
Carol grew up in North Carolina and had her first one-woman show this past year “Carolina Visions”. She is an award winning artist and is currently represented in several locations in Charlotte, N.C. , Greenville, S.C., Ashville, N.C., Raleigh, N.C. She is a member of Charotte Art League, Mint Hill Arts and Matthews Art Guild as well as the American Oil Painters Society.
Her corporate collectors include S.C. I. Corporation, Corporate Bond Group, McEwen Mint Hill Chapel, Sharon Memorial Park and NovantHospitals,
