As a child growing up in Kansas City, Missouri, Carol had a constant supply of drawing materials. She graduated with a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and in 2014 received her MFA from the University of Hartford, Connecticut. Her illustrations have appeared in 60 picture books and countless magazines, newspapers and advertisements. Her books have been chosen as Outstanding Science Trade Books by the National Science Teacher’s Association and Children’s Book Council and been honored with the Children’s Choice Book Award and the Original Art exhibition at the Society of Illustrators in New York. Her artwork has been selected for exhibition at The Society of Illustrators and many times by The Illustrator’s Club of Washington DC. Carol’s work is included in the Society of Illustrators permanent collection from the exhibition, Women Illustrators Past and Present.
She enjoys speaking at elementary schools, libraries, conferences and colleges about her focus on nature and her artistic process. Before recently moving to the Boston area, she taught illustration at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
