Her passion for horses has long since been a driving force behind her art. Going full circle, back to her love of drawing animals as a child, Carolyn added custom pony and puppy portraits to her repertoire. Working exclusively with acrylic paint, Carolyn strives to capture each animal’s essence through intricate and precise detail. A native Montrealer, Carolyn attended Sheridan College in Toronto where she studied illustration.  She currently resides in Ottawa and competes on the provincial circuit.
