by Carol Grigg
Carol (1942- ) is part Cherokee Indian and she draws her inspiration from nature and primitive art. "I explore a variety of creative forms; watercolor, oil, collage, clay, inks, music and poetry- anything I can easily and quickly get my hands on. I am influenced by primitive art, especially from the earliest cave paintings. The images I bring forth are surrounded by space and create a suspended moment in which one might rest. In this I would wish for the ideas of ecstasy, intuition, love and awareness in nature, healing power and spiritual unity to surface into the consciousness of the observer - participant. It is the Great Mother energy I am expressing."
She was born and continues to live in Oregon. She was self-taught and developed her unique style and techniques of painting.
