Carol Grice-Curran

I am a native of the South, living most of my life along the Gulf Coast in Alabama and Florida. As a young person, I spent my school years in Mobile, Alabama and my summers in Gulf Shores, Alabama. As an adult I have lived in the rural South, Gulf Shores and in Florida, Pensacola and suburban Tampa.

​My work reflects this heritage, principally the tranquility of landscapes, seascapes, florals, beaches, weather beaten barns, rusty tin roofs, blue crabs, dusty roads, pine forests and gardens. I am self-taught, but several mentors along the way helped me define my style which I describe as a mix of realism and impressionism. My mediums are oils and water colors. The works range from life-sized to miniatures.

Professionally, my art career started in 1973. My paintings sold, my interests and skills broadened, and in 1980 I opened a gallery and teaching studio which I operated for 10 years. I sold the business in 1989 and moved to Gulf Shores, actively continuing my art career for about another 10 years.

Beginning in 2000, caring for an ailing husband forced a sharp reduction in my time to paint. But a bright new phase in my life began in 2007 which resulted in a marriage, a move and a new studio in Lithia, Florida where I am happily ensconced painting…painting…painting.

I am always eager for the opportunity to study with a fellow artist or try a new technique. I am aware of new visual concepts developing before me each day, and I am constantly trying to reach new heights in my mediums.
