Carol was born in Los Angeles and attended Chouinard Art School. After moving to Hawaii, she obtained an MFA and a Masters in American Studies from UH Manoa.

She taught in the Fashion Design Department, retired and is teaching a couple of classes.

She has had a long career as a fine artist. Her works evoke island sensibilities and dynamic compositions. Many of her works can be found in numerous private and corporate collections including the State Foundation.

I’ve always liked painting sports figures for the bodies in motion, the intensity of the faces and the variety of players. Now, due to Covid, watching sports has changed. There are hardly any fans in the audience. I was fascinated by the virtual fans projected where the audience once was. This player has a uni-brow like Frida Kahlo, who I admire, so I wanted to paint that too.
