Carole began her journey as an artist in Oklahoma over 70 years ago. She became known for her unique style and experimental watercolor techniques. Her style is abstract, using watercolor, mixed-media collage and acrylic on paper as well as acrylic and collage on canvas. Through her life she lived in El Paso, St. Louis and finally, San Antonio. Southwestern landscapes and Mexico were major sources of inspiration for her work and she travelled extensively, sketchbook or camera always close at hand. Carole Myers, a signature member of the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society was also active in the San Antonio Watercolor Group and Texas Watercolor Society (Purple Sage Brush Member). She has won more than 300 awards including the High Winds Medal Award in the 122nd Annual Exhibition of AWS. Her work is included in The Best of Watercolor, Creative Watercolor, Step by Step, The Creative Artist, Abstracts in Watercolor, Texas Watercolor Society: Fifty Years of Excellence, Watercolor Magic, and several others. She served a juror and critic for exhibitions and taught numerous art workshops in Rockport, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Kerrville and throughout the U.S. as well as in Mexico and France. “I express both the vast panoramic views and intimate bits of nature with a spiritual response, rather than a literal interpretation.”
“My work as a painter has been inspired for many years by the beauty of landscapes. I express both the vast panoramic views and intimate bits of nature with a spiritual response, rather than a literal interpretation. Various symbols are often included to add to the mystery of my paintings that may be inspired by petroglyphs, pictographs or personal calligraphy, leaving the interpretation to the viewers. As an experimental artist working on canvas or paper, I use a variety of water media, (fluid acrylic, Interference acrylics, transparent watercolors, watercolor crayons, etc.) along with collage and found objects. Painting in response to the sounds of nature or music (Native American flute, classical guitar, jazz or flamenco) enhances the creative process.”
