Carol Kidd began painting in oils after taking a class at a craft store in Maryland. She spent 36 years teaching French. After retiring she found more time for painting and began to take classes and workshops to experiment with techniques and media.
Carol has always enjoyed working with textiles, and finds calm in knitting and other needle crafts. Recently, she has added hand dying silk scarves to her pastimes and finds great satisfaction in making marbled papers to use as decoration for stationery and journals. “I have always loved the play of color and the way it can create a mood, express a feeling. How lucky I am to have found inspiration in travel and the beautiful scenery of Southport, NC.”
