The current (Fall 2011) Arizona issue of Luxe. Interiors + Design Magazine features a two page article on Carol and her work as “the best kept secret in the Southwest”. Woodland Queens
and Celestial Joy
are presented as well as a short article on her work. Carol is very excited to witness the first appreciation in public print
to her team of artists helping to transform her work into the bronze forms – those she calls her “ghost artists” working tirelessly and with exceptional skill and talent at the foundry. She holds these artists in highest esteem and works very closely with them to create her body of work; as they assist her in bringing her visions to reality and to our world. Far too rarely are these talented persons acknowledged for their outstanding talent and dedication to this work.

Celestial Joy has been selected for inclusion in the 2012 - 2013 Art Kudos International Juried Art Competition. The award selections were made by David Cohen, editor and publisher of Artcritical. This year 157 artists representing 20 countries were accepted into the show.
The Indianapolis Museum of Art is the premier cultural resource for the state of Indiana and a major arts-based institution for the Midwest. Currently, the museum is building a new state-of-the-art scientific research laboratory in which to house its highly respected Art Conservation Department. Carol's Remembering Gratitude
will become a permanent part of this science lab collection - per request of the Conservation Department.
“The laboratory will be a high profile feature for the museum with frequent visitors, including curators, donors, trustees, and the public. It will provide a captivating avenue for discussing artists’ materials, craftsmanship, the processes of material aging and how conservation intervenes, and the ways that science can enlighten us about our cultural patrimony – how an object was made, what materials were used by the artist, and how an object reacts with its surroundings.“- Dr. Gregory Dale Smith, Senior Conversation Scientist
Carol's deliberate and intricate patination process is of particular interest to the museum laboratory. It is hoped that Remembering Gratitude
will make a significant contribution in IMA's Art Conservation Department's studies to help understand how to best display and preserve bronze works; and specifics on how conservation intervenes.
Carol is a member of the acclaimed Artists for Conservation Foundation. The foundation limits the number of artists it represents and Carol is proud to be part of their worthy mission of exceptional support for the preservation of our natural world.
