Carol Westcott’s work depicts the natural environment and ‘urban-scapes’ in acrylic, mixed media and watercolour. She explores in her paintings the landscape and architecture of places she lives and visits – from the urban `backyard` of her Toronto home to rural settings miles from the nearest village.
Represented in galleries, corporate, public and private collections, Carol’s work is collected internationally. Her work is in Canada, United States, England, Australia and New Zealand.
Carol is an elected member of The Society of Canadian Artists (SCA), Ontario Society of Artists (OSA) and the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC).
My work is inspired by the natural environment. Growing up in rural Ontario gave me an early appreciation for the land and its vagaries so, from a very young age, I was inspired by the landscape that I now present in my images which have been described as capturing the ‘atmosphere inherent in the landscape’ and ‘manipulating form and colour to near abstraction, [producing] imagery that is both convincing and original’.
