Artist - Carol Dewart (RSW, PAI)

Texture, pattern and light are the key elements in my paintings. By changing any of these factors a painting can be constantly evolving with little variation in the actual subject matter. The introduction of a specific texture or pattern can define the mood of the painting. Add light to the equation and a simple composition can have many different facets. Although I trained in drawing/painting , I also spent a year studying embroidery and weaving. By integrating both disciplines my work can  hopefully develop in many directions.
