Carol Granger is from a small farming community in the southern part of Indiana. Her fondness for the open countryside led to her interest in art at an early age. She attended Purdue University, where she studied art education and interior design. Professional work after college took her into the field of health care design. Marriage and children brought about a second career in fine arts, allowing her to work from home.
Carol first worked in colored pencil and now works almost exclusively in oil. Her love of the outdoors continues to inspire her oil landscapes and the simple beauty of everyday objects are thoughtfully represented in her still lifes. She has also become enamored with painting en plein air, finding that this practice makes her a better studio painter. Carol has shown her work and won awards in juried shows in the mid-west and internationally. Her works have sold locally through Studios on High Gallery in Columbus, and through the Internet.
Carol currently lives and works in the Worthington, OH area with her husband and faithful canine companion, Logan. They have two grown children.
