Carol Stewart was born in Ontario, Canada in 1959. She obtained a B.F.A. from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario in 1981, and finished her M.F.A. in painting at Fontbonne University in St. Louis, Missouri in 2010. For more than 35 years, Carol has rendered still life and gardens from London, UK, Vancouver, British Columbia, St Louis, Missouri and now Columbus Ohio.
I am interested in the abstract elements of the art work as much as the subject matter. My still life paintings are not still. I feel that my paintings are lasting over time and invite repeated exploration.
Carol’s works can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, the United States and Europe.
