A contemporary landscape painter, carol Westcott depicts natural and built environments. Her images are formed from the memories, fragments of experience and influence of her early life in Eastern Ontario. Working in acrylic and mixed media, she interprets the landscape, often in a slightly abstracted form.
In speaking of her own work, Westcott states: “My work is inspired by the natural environment. Growing up in rural Ontario gave me an early appreciation for the land and its vagaries so, from a very young age, I was inspired by the landscape that I now present in my images.”
Westcott has exhibited her award-winning work in many solo shows and group exhibitions across Canada and Internationally. Her work is represented in corporate, public and private collections and is collected internationally. Several of her paintings have been purchased by the Government of Ontario Art Collection.
