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 is a committed conservationist and is determined to use her talents to support endangered wildlife wherever possible. She is looking forward to developing sketches done on a field trip to the South Luangwa NP and Ethiopia after visiting this year and working on a new collection of artwork for exhibition early in 2020.
Carol wanted to lend her support to Project Luangwa by giving some of artwork inspired from being in the South Luangwa NP. She has produced a collection of wildlife cards where the entire proceeds of their sale will go directly to help the Project out in Zambia. Below is an example of one of cards. Further details about Project Luangwa and more examples of the cards can be found on the conservation page.
