Carolyn Councell is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art and has had experience in commercial art, teaching, and fine art. She is a member of several art associations, including signature membership in MPSGS, The Baltimore Watercolor Society, and is a member of the Annapolis Watercolor Club. She is also a member of, Annapolis Art Alliance, and MFA, Annapolis, MD. She has exhibited extensively in each of these venues as well as in other galleries in these regions.
Carolyn’s styles range from realism to abstract, and she usually combines both approaches in her paintings. Subject matter includes people, landscapes, seascapes, and flowers. Her preferred media includes watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, and oil.
About her work she says “I try not to set boundaries in painting, leaving the door open to inspiration which can come from various experiences. I feel each painting has a life of its own, and attempt to go with what each one suggests to me, such as mood, color, composition, balance, and all of the elements of art. I let the painting “speak to me”. By continually growing as an artist I feel there are no limitations to what can be achieved in the world of Art.”
Carolyn has received numerous awards:
First Prize in the Baltimore Watercolor Society Anniversary Show
Honorable Mention at the Annapolis Watercolor Club exhibit at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis
First Prize at the Annapolis Watercolor Club exhibit at Maryland Hall in Annapolis.
She has won Equal awards and Honorable Mention awards at The Art League in Alexandria, VA.
