About the Artist

Carol Welz grew up in the town of Berlin and graduated from Berlin High School.When she was about 11 years old, she spent time in PA visiting with her grandmother and it was there that she found out she could draw. Having nothing in particular to do she starting drawing roses. From then on she developed and interest in painting and drawing.

A couple of years after high school she married and had two children, so there was little time to paint. But she dabbled here and there. Took a course at the now defunct CT School of Fine Arts in water color painting. She only painted in oils before that time and found she loved the way watercolors moved and the riches of the colors created by laying many colors on top of another.

When her children were grown she found she had the time to take more courses in water color and soon was painting on her own.

She paints mostly from her own photographs. When she travels, she takes many pictures and loves painting scenes from around the Town of Berlin. Her main love is painting landscapes and flowers. She has a big flower garden from which many of her flower pictures are created. She also loves wild flowers and walking in fields and woods to find them. Attention to detail is her main focus.

She has been a member of the CT Watercolor Society and Lyme Art Association in the past. She has won many prizes and awards and sold many paintings through the years.

Her love of nature and the environment inspire her and are true beauty and joy that she can only try to capture forever in her paintings.
