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 will be undertaking a field trip to Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park in 2016, where her sketches and new work will then be included in her next solo show Brush with the Wild.
Currently she is working on a new collection of paintings inspired from studying the unique wildlife of Western and Southern Australia, experimenting with natural papers sourced from a paper making workshop in Burnie, Tasmania.
