Highlighting ROAM Gallery Artist
Carolyn Bryson Barone - Artist
I grew up in Jamaica and come from a very creative family. I have studied art throughout high school and university, graduating from Acadia in Wolfville, NS with a degree in painting.
I use my hands more often than not, as I end up getting frustrated with the limitations of a paintbrush. I need to feel the paint. Painting for me is an extension of my frame of mind.
Sounds so cliche but the colours I choose subconsciously express my mood. I can look back on my various stages of life and see the ups and downs in my art.
I love working with children - I teach art to the students at Bridgeview Elementary and that provides me with moments of indescribable joy. Art is my passion .....
I've had pieces exhibited in Ottawa on Parliament Hill in the East Block, in Calgary celebrating International Women's Day, Nova Scotia and here in Vancouver. My art has been sold to various collectors and I have developed a loyal following.
