Full Artist's statement
Carol Rowan works in the tradition of American realism. Her drawings, paintings, and fine art prints are widely collected and have been shown in numerous museums and galleries in the U.S. She maintains active studios in both Washington, DC, and Nobleboro, Maine.
Some of Carol’s favorite subject matter includes the American landscape, architecture in the U.S. and abroad (particularly in Italy and Australia, where she has family), harbors in Maine and elsewhere, humble boats like dinghies, and classical, casual still life scenes.
Her influences include Frederic Edwin Church (a distant relative), Andrew and Jamie Wyeth, and modern masters like Jackson Pollock, Joseph Albers, and George Tooker.
Carol is a skilled and sensitive portrait artist who has captured people, horses, dogs, and other animals in paintings and drawings. To explore commissioning your own project, or to learn about other available works, please contact Carol’s studio.
