"Through abstract painting, shapes and bold colors, my paintings suggest a story. I enjoy painting people in relationship to other people, animals, insects, or reptiles. The stories are often fanciful or playful, sometimes a spoof or gentle poking fun at our small vanities. I draw inspiration from poems, lines of poetry, or strong images from many years of living in South America. I try to capture the moment where the subjects are poised to take a bite of a juicy apple, snatch a kiss, breathe in the morning sky, dialogue, or doze off under a hot noon sun. All of my work is drawn from that strange place were images lie in wait for a new form and energy, and hopefully will awaken a wry smile."

"I've accused the innocent, loved the wicked, danced inside a drunken gypsy and a gluttonous whore, strutted silks, high hats, pious robes, ate the earth with a starving tongue, died all the deaths everywhere of each little proud god who cuts across my bones."

-Excerpt from Tattooed Woman, by Carolyn E. Campbell

Carolyn is a Colorado native, raised in Denver and graduate of the University of Colorado. She lived in South America for ten years where she taught school and raised a family. Her books of poetry and painting reflect that experience. After returning to the United States, she became an award winning poet and novelist while continuing to teach.

She has published five books of poetry, all of which received the Colorado Authors League Top Hand Award. In 1998 she won the Colorado Book Award in Poetry for Tattooed Woman. She recently converted a collection of dramatic monologues into a full-length play and musical entitled The Ballad of Hallelujah House, which premiered in Evergreen, Boulder and Denver in 2004. She has also received three national awards including the Willa Award, for her first novel, Fireweed, A Woman's Saga in Gold Rush America.

Over the last few years, Carolyn has returned to her love and art and dedicated herself to oil painting. She has studied with Oksana Ross, Chuck Ceraso, Ron Hicks, Kim English, Doug Dawson, Sandra Kaplan, Dale Chismam and Steve Tracy at the Art Students League of Denver, The Denver Art Museum and Foothills Art Center.

Carolyn's work has appeared in K.D. Moore Gallery, Foothills Art Gallery, Evergreen Art Center, Reed Gallery, Rotary Gallery and Rockin' Rose Gallery. She has also had two one-woman shows at Reed Gallery in Denver and Rotary Gallery in Evergreen.

 

Giclee signature prints are available for many of these paintings.  Please contact Carolyn at 303-674-1330 for details, sizes and pricing.
