Carol Knowlton-DorityCarol Knowlton-Dority
Visual Artist, B.A., B.Ed.


ARTIST STATEMENT

My artistic vision brings together contemporary visual art with meditative practice in order to consider the relationship between reflection and transformation.

I explore the evolving nature of emotional experience, touching on themes of love, loss, desire, and hope. My paintings offer a way of exploring and developing compassion for the deep parts of oneself and of others. CarolBecause emotional experience is at the heart of these works they bridge various social boundaries and inspire connection across difference.
