When I walked into Carolyn’s studio it just seemed to fit the artist, light, airy and calm. She shares her personal studio space with the Young Artist Series where she conducts and teaches art to children. She has a passion for teaching both young and old how to develop their fine art skills. She has been doing it for over 14 years and has a firm belief that appreciation of the arts is a positive addition to a persons life.

Carolyn’s pieces are typically large with applications of acrylics, found objects and mixed media. She holds a BFA and MA from East Carolina University and has also attended the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota and Southern Illinois University. She has also completed Special Art Studies at the University of Georgia in Athens, the National Palace Museum in Taipei, Taiwan and Le Cerquex-sous-Passavant in France. She has also studied with Masters Koji Ogura of Japan and Ginpoh Gin in Taiwan.

She has exhibited at  at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Georgetown, DC, the Joanne Rose Gallery, Reston, Va., the Touchstone Gallery, Washington, DC and the Target Gallery in Alexandria, Va. She was commissioned by the District of Columbia Commission on the Arts to produce a free standing, painted sculpture for public space within the city, which was later auctioned to the public.

Carolyn is also interested in giving back to the community. She is offering a Young Artists Series full scholarship for a deserving child in the Wilmington community with special art interests. Details can be found along with examples of her work at her web site  Carolyn Faulkner Art. Stop by her site and get to know this wonderful woman and talented artist.
