Original Carol Barrett paintings are available for sale, and some of these are shown in the Painting galleries. Carol also undertakes commissions of wildlife in the client’s preferred medium, eg, pastel, watercolour, acrylic, oil, ink, or mixed media.
Carol lives and works in Edinburgh at the Dovecot Studio and regularly travels to Africa to study, sketch and photograph wildlife in its natural habitat. Carol has enjoyed using natural papers sourced from a workshop in Burnie, Tasmania for depicting a collection of paintings and sketches inspired from the unique wildlife of Western and Southern Australia.
Currently she is excited to be working on new artwork after recently returning from a field trip to South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. These paintings of African wildlife will feature in her next solo exhibition, Brush with the Wild, which will take place in the earlier part of 2017 and will also include her paintings from Australia.
