Meet Your Facilitators

Carol Currie

Carol’s artistic focus is the rendering of a contemporary landscape: modern in its simplified, barren approach. The work evokes an abstract and interpretative quality created by the disparity between starkness and hyperrealism, with a specialty in geological forms of Georgian Bay, including Killarney, La Cloche Mountains and the North Channel, Lake Huron.

Carol’s love of art and nature nurtured her as she obtained a degree in Science from University of Toronto. However, as a self-taught artist she transformed her career into artistic endeavours and began painting professionally over 15 years ago becoming a full-time artist in 2003. Prior to becoming a painter, she worked prolifically in graphite medium, winning many awards for her work since 1983. Carol’s work can be found in numerous Private and Corporate Collections throughout North America.

Her work has been exhibited in the Art Gallery of Sudbury, The Temiskaming Gallery, and the Museum of Northern History in Kirkland Lake.
