Working in a large spectrum of media, e.g.: watercolor, oil paint, paper garment patterns and textile collages, 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. Carol is a two-time recipient of the ARC Grant from the Durfee Foundation, a Pollock-Krasner Fellowship and the Wynn Newhouse Award. She is represented by Craig Krull Gallery in Santa Monica, CA and lives in northeast LA with her strange boyfriend and their little dog, Gemma.
