Carol Skinger is best known for her landscape watercolor & gouache paintings bold in style, drawn from the imagination, of both abstract and recognizable places. Watercolor, gouache, ink and pastel, are her primary mediums.
For her solo show at Cooper Siegel Community Library in Fox Chapel May 14, 2017- late winter 2018 look for some views from her imagination and for views of the area served by the library. Some works in the show are of Aspinwall including Aspinwall Riverfront Park, Greenwood Cemetery, Hitchhiker Brewing Co (former Fort Pitt Brewing Co) in Sharpsburg, and various scenes Carol admires from her frequent local bicycle rides.
Her work includes commissioned work often custom house portraits of which there will be examples. She has done paintings of homes locally in Fox Chapel, Aspinwall, O’hara, Indiana Township, Squirrel Hill, Oakmont, Sewickley, and other locales.
Carol resides in Fox Chapel and has lived in Pittsburgh for over 30 years. Originally from Vermont she grew up in the Lake Champlain Islands and in Stowe at the foot of Mt. Mansfield. After graduating from college in the Bay Area with an Art degree, she moved to Burlington, VT and then to Boston and developed a career in architectural space planning and interior design. Carol met her husband, John Horn, in Boston and they relocated to Pittsburgh when he became a professor of Neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh in the medical school. In recent years, Carol has intensified her lifelong love of drawing and painting and has become active in the Pittsburgh arts community.
Education: California College of the Arts (BFA). Additional studies at Instituto Allende, Mexico, Boston Architectural Center, Carlow University and Truro Center for the Arts.
