Carol Cavalaris


Carol Cavalaris

1943 -2020


Carol lived in the middle of a forest in the high country of Colorado, inspired by the beauty of her surroundings. Painting wildlife and nature, color and detail, were her passions. She had a fine art background in oil painting, however she really enjoyed the freedom of the digital medium as it stimulated her imagination and offered so many exciting possibilities.


She explored art programs, like Photoshop, still using brushes to paint, but the computer screen became her canvas, blending reality and fantasy together to create her mixed media images that she called 'living art'. Many of the animals and flowers Carol painted have a spiritual quality, with the power to heal hearts and spirits, if one is open to their message. Carol saw the uniqueness in every living being as a gift to be treasured. It was this need to capture their life force, to enhance and celebrate it, that gives meaning to her work. 


Carol exhibited in several galleries, and her work is in private collections all over the world.


Her legacy and business affairs are managed by her daughter Heather Picquelle and supported by her licensing agent MHS Licensing & Consulting.
