@carolynjoeart Is Our Instagram Winner!Posted on 13 Jun 13:22
Congratulations to Carolyn Joe Daniel, our latest Instagram winner! Based in Dallas, TX, Carolyn creates large-scale colorful abstracts with acrylic washes and resin: "I love drips & spills and paint that takes days to dry. It’s life-giving and brings me joy."
Carolyn majored in painting and print-making at Wake Forest University, curated at art galleries in Sydney, Australia and even spent 2 years at culinary school, but her greatest joy is painting abstracts, seascapes and modern portraiture in her home studio: “Painting has been a 25 year-long, colorful ribbon tying together most of my memories…”
Carolyn first learned to paint in oils but because of its longer dry time and the toxic solvents and mediums, she made the transition to water based acrylic paint. After discovering resin, Carolyn fell in love with the glossy dimension it gives to her work and that it helps to preserve and protect it.
Carolyn works with designers and private collectors for commissioned projects and licenses her art to several retailers: "My art has been adapted for yoga pants, rain boots, sports water bottles, calendars/journals as well as large scale commercial wall coverings for retail, hotels, hospital and office spaces."
Above all else, Carolyn hopes "to share my love for painting and the momentary joy color can bring to anyone passing by."
Giclee prints of Carolyn's work can be purchased on her website. Original paintings are available at Maestri Gallery in Dallas and at Carolyn’s studio by appointment. Her work can also be found at several retailers.
