Carol Sparks has been a professional artist for more than thirty years. In 1979 Carol took several paintings to a new gallery in Old Town in hopes the owner would like to show her work. Happily, her work was accepted into the gallery and all her paintings were sold on the opening night!
Carol is a native of Albuquerque. She has resided in the north valley most of her life not far from where her grandfather had a dairy in the 1930’s and 1940’s.
Carol is a self-taught artist. She learned by reading art instruction books and trying her hand. Watercolor has always been her medium of choice because of its unique ability to capture light through color. She works in the traditional transparent method because she feels it is the best way to capture the light.
