Have you met…Carol McDermott?


An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and other I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Carol McDermott.

Even in a small moment there is joy - Oil on canvas 16"x16", 2013

Artist Statement.

“Much of the inspiration for my art is drawn from the abundant and diverse natural wonders that surround me. Sometimes my inspiration is gained from the metaphysical world, sometimes I am guided by the natural beauty in flowers and the classical elements, earth, water and air.

I approach my work in many different ways, following a flow of feelings or a particular energy pattern and use a diverse array of media to capture those feelings. Great pleasure is taken from a peaceful walk in the woods, collecting herbs, twigs and wild flowers and realising an impulsion to include them on a canvas with my favourite medium, oil.” CM
