Carol Tribou Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement The transparent nature of watercolor has always fascinated me. I’m constantly captivated by how simply the glow of light can dramatically enhance any subject. God’s beautiful handiwork in nature and life continues to inspire me. While still learning to express that radiance and freshness in each of my paintings, my hope is that the works I create will bring glory to God and also be a source of encouragement to others.
As long as I can remember I’ve had a love for art. I was born in Florida, but moved to Texas at a young age where I later majored in Art at Dallas Baptist College (now University). My main focus through the years has been watercolor painting and calligraphy, though I enjoy pencil drawing also. I frequently combine both watercolor and calligraphy within my paintings.
Beginning in 1987, many of my works have been published. Opportunities to expand my art education have been through artist’s workshops as well as learning from leading artists’ videos and books. I also enjoy exhibiting and selling my original art in shows and attending art galleries and exhibits.
