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 rural 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 on a farm 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 solo and group exhibitions in commercial and public galleries across Canada. Her work, collected internationally, is represented in corporate, private and public collections including the Government of Ontario Art Collection held by the Archives of Ontario. She is actively involved as an elected member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour, the Society of Canadian Artists and the Ontario Society of Artists.
