Carolyn Kramer, Artist
Suite 200 - 1650 Duranleau St.
Vancouver (Granville Island) BC
By appointment only
I live between the sea wall of Vancouver, Canada and the mountains of Bel Air, California. At times, I am close to old growth forests and west coast beaches. Here nature blends patterns and colours in tidemarks, layers of earth and microscopic land forms. The bottom of the ocean floor, texture of tree bark and melting ice emerge onto my canvas expressing a soulful, ethereal sense of design, colour and paint application.
Raised in the country, close to nature but not people. I have closely observed earth’s formations. Now, years later, these impressions make their way into my art. Microscopic
images come from my own photographs or sketches and expanded 1000% using mediums of oil encaustic, acrylic paint, string and gold leaf.
It is my hope that my paintings express both dramatic and serene sensibilities and create a visual meditation on environmental beauty. I exhibit in both Los Angeles and Vancouver and work out of my Vancouver, Granville Island studio.
