(°1968, Germiston, South Africa), is a South African artist.
She spent her youth in beautiful Magaliesburg, where she lived with her twin sister and the rest of her family. She inherited the love for art from her father. At a young age she got interested in 3D art and she invented numerous sculptures in her head. Carol studied at the Johannesburg School of Art, Ballet, Drama and Music. At first she chose the field of music (an influence clearly shown in her later artworks), but soon she shifted towards art.
Having a degree from WITS Technicon, she started a successful pottery workshop in Magaliesburg, which grew into a factory in Modderfontein. After 2000 and via a detour in Byzantine painting and wood turning, she rediscovered the fluidity of her loved clay. It was only in 2011 that she started making bronze sculptures.
She wants to create a feel-good art, which makes people laugh, while accentuating the good things in this world. A certain nostalgia rays from her artworks; it brings spectators back to their childhood. Carol’s enchanted world is populated with funny and playful rabbits and frogs.
Carol attaches great importance to a beautiful patina and she wants her sculptures to look good from all sides.
‘I am at my happiest when I have clay in my hands.’
