Carol Cavalaris lives in the middle of a forest in the high country of Colorado. It is the wild beauty of her surroundings that inspires her digital paintings of wildlife and nature. She grew up in Southern California and has been creating since childhood, always drawing, painting or making something. She has enjoyed many creative adventures, including sculpting, stained glass art, being a display artist, an interior designer, a graphic artist, a copywriter, and a creative director.
Reality and fantasy blend together as she combines photo sources and painting techniques to create her unique mixed medium images that she calls ‘living art’. She believes each has something precious and special to give to all of us and each painting is a tribute to these amazing creatures, where she strives to capture their essence. Many of the animals she paints have a spiritual quality with the power to heal hearts and spirits, if one is open to their message.
Carol sees the uniqueness in every living being as a momentary gift to be treasured. And so it is this need to capture the life force, to enhance and celebrate it, and even give it life long after it has faded, that gives meaning to her work. Creating, learning, and growing artistically have kept the joy alive and it is her passion to bring healing joy to others.
Carol currently exhibits her work in several Colorado galleries, including the Grace Gallery in the famous Santa Fe Avenue Art District in Denver. She is a freelance artist for The Mountain, and creates custom art, specializing wildlife, floral, and pet paintings. Her on-line galleries can be viewed on her website.
