Juror: Carolyn Lord

A "plein air" artist since college, Carolyn Lord was influenced by the 20th Century California Watercolor Style of Millard Sheets and his peers, featuring bold color and strong design. Her career has capitalized on watercolor's portability to paint the vernacular architecture, landscape, and gardens of her home state of California. Lord is a Signature Member of the California Art Club, National Watercolor Society, and American Women Artists. She has been profiled in American Artist, Plein Air, and Watercolor Artist magazines; podcast interviews with Savvy Painter, Learn to Paint, and Art Chat. Her watercolors are in the permanent collections of the Hilbert Museum, Buck Collection, Museum of Ventura County.  Recent group shows include: De Young Open; Triton Salon; San Luis Obispo Museum Brushstrokes; and a perennial favorite the Santa Cruz Art League Statewide Landscape Exhibition.
