Native Los Angeles self-taught artist, Carol Es is primarily known for creating personal narratives as the fuel for her subject matter. Also a writer, and musician, she works in a large spectrum of media -- watercolor, oil paint, paper garment patterns, textile collages, as well as video and handmade Artists' books. Many of her unique pieces are featured in numerous private and public collections, including the Getty Museum, Brooklyn Museum, UCLA Special Collections and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. She is a two-time recipient of the ARC Grant from the Durfee Foundation, a Pollock-Krasner Fellowship and the Wynn Newhouse Award. Carol lives east of Downtown with her strange boyfriend and their funny little dog.
