Artist Statement:

What is the element that engages the viewer in a work of art? Is it color, painting style, or a connection to a particular scene?

Through my paintings, I attempt to express my lifelong love affair with color and design. My desire is to share a connection with the ever-changing landscape or the interplay of light and shadow on simple objects. My hope is to engage the viewer with the scene that inspired my painting.


Carole Bryant’s art education path detoured to a nursing career with an emphasis on research. While working in the medical field, she continued her art studies. On early retirement she immersed herself in painting, her first love.

In her home studio in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Carole strives to capture on canvas or paper fleeting moments in time. She is inspired by her garden and the varied tapestry of North Carolina landscapes. In her travels, she is drawn to scenes with dramatic light and shadow.
