Carol Sullivan
Carol Sullivan’s exploration into photography began as a teenager. Photography allows her to combine her love of nature with her passion for artistic expression. Carol seeks the signs of the natural world in her surroundings, be they deep in a forest, along a country lane or in the vivid colors and simple beauty of fruits and vegetables. Carol’s work has been published in local magazines including Vermont Life.

 

Carol Truesdell
Carol J. Truesdell is a photo artist based in Underhill Center, Vermont. Carol’s
images begin as RAW digital photographs that are juxtaposed to create a new image- a photomontage - that is intended to look more painterly than photographic. All images are printed with archival ink on mould-made water color paper, designed to last over one hundred years.

In this show, Carol's images focus on Vermont scenes, architecture, portraits and whimsy. She's created a series of images to celebrate spring and summer, called “Flower Hats”. "I must confess that as a child I loved to dress my pets up in doll clothes," says Carol. "From this exhibit you can see that not much has changed except I’m now dressing them digitally."
