Biography of Carolyn Pack

Carolyn Pack is a professional artist living in Toronto, Ontario As the daughter of professional classical musicians Carolyn distinguished herself as a visual artist. She graduated from the Toronto School of Art in 1986 to continue painting full time.

She was prolific, applying painting principles to develop her style using direct, layering, glazing techniques to celebrate the beauty of nature, architecture and the faces of the human condition. As a developing figurative painter she used original collage and her photography as a process of work which evolved as a method of artistic growth.

Through a lifetime of studio paintings and exhibitions she developed as an accomplished painter. Her bodies of work include expressive compositions of faces within natural and architectural design, still life and landscape.

With the mentorship of portrait artist and art instructor, Gary Smith Carolyn developed the skill to paint the accomplished realism of her portrait of naturalist, Harry Lumsden.

Today each painting is unique reflecting a personal journey of technical and creative ideas. The artist paints through a developing process influenced by masters and created by her own vision and love of painting.

Her oil paintings have been awarded Best of the Show and Honourable Mention in juried Arts Etobicoke exhibitions. In 2018 Carolyn was invited by international curator, Rosi Raneri to exhibit her paintings in the La Pigna Gallery, Rome and the Luigi Bellini Museum in Florence Italy.
