Carolyn was born and raised in Amarillo, Texas. As a child, in the 1950s and 60s, my family made many road trips to Santa Fe, Taos, Gallup, and Navajo reservations in New Mexico and Arizona. As a result, Navajo weavings, especially the Yei style, influence my work.
Living now in Little Rock, AR, Carolyn learned to weave in Sacramento, California, as part of a BA in art history. She studied many weaving techniques, but tapestry always held my interest and imagination. After earning a Masters in English in Eugene, Oregon, and teaching for years, she retired in 2007. Carolyn quickly returned to tapestry.
In 2012, Carolyn received the ATA Scholarship for Tapestry Study. She was also accepted into ATA’s “Small Tapestry International 3: Outside the Line.” In 2015, “St. Lucia de Picasso” was selected for the “2015 Irene Rosenzweig Biennial Juried Exhibition” at the ASC in Pine Bluff, AR. More recently, she exhibited tapestries in ATA’s “Small Tapestry International 5” in 2017, and the Australian Tapestry Workshop exhibition in 2017.
