Carolyn S. Pio is an artist inspired by the turbulent organic essence of nature and the creative process while exploring watercolors, wax, graphite, pen, and ink. Her hope is that her art empowers nature and its various, wondrous creatures.
I am an artist that envisions the continuity between all life and attempts to illustrate the connections in my creations. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. The beauty of these connections is what I am trying to illustrate. Watercolors are a small force of water mixed with colored vibrance... beautifully and wildly independent. Does not care where my brush may be coaxing it to go. This flow is leading me onwards to a purpose, to bring awareness and appreciation of these connections. It is all a cycle. We are all called to nurture our children, families, communities, and environment, yet it is complicated. Hence all my details are an attempt to illustrate the connections. My hope is that my art empowers nature and all its various, wondrous creatures.
Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Carolyn would explore what she now calls “islands of refuge”. These little stripes of “woods' ' in between properties seems like a vast wilderness to her as a child. Since 1991, she and her husband have nestled in the woods of Central PA. Carolyn now has bigger woods to explore. Understanding this vast difference, Carolyn values the wildness and all the life it holds. Carolyn's artwork mimics the wildness of nature, yet the depth embodies a sense of awe and empowerment, bringing a sense of awe that makes you want to protect and serve the natural areas.
