Carolyn Meyer Biography

Carolyn Meyer

 For every artist there is a growth cycle of mastery and discovery. Instinct, passion, education, long hours in the studio coupled with a quest for a new way to describe the world in which we live can lead to a specific focus, perhaps even an obsession. With Carolyn Meyer, this is evident in the extensive progression of her work that bridges the gap between realism and abstraction. Her paintings directly refer to her visual relationship with urban landscape specifically San Francisco, New York and the fields of Italy or Napa. The surfaces reveal a surplus of barely controlled oil paint that somehow represents places we know. Her direct relationship with these places infused with her passion for Jazz music is the source behind what drives her to create work. This is the world she lives in, is inspired by and continues to thrive.

 Carolyn has a MFA in painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

Here, too, she is Director of the School of Painting for both undergraduate and graduate programs. She teaches classes in abstract and landscape painting exclusively and teaches during summer in Florence, Italy. Her work is in many collections worldwide.
