Artist Statement - Carol Wiggins

I have always enjoyed visiting museums and the appreciated the beautiful artwork. So, when I retired in 2007, after teaching special needs children for 25 years, I became a volunteer at the Mobile Museum of Art. I especially enjoyed helping children in the art classroom. It was there that I was inspired to take art classes myself. My appreciation of art, became a creation of art. I began painting in acrylics, then moved onto watercolors. I continued to experiment with other media, including clay, collage, etc. A friend introduced me to Sumi-e, Asian Brush Painting. This style of painting soon became my favorite. Painting with ink on the very absorbent rice paper is challenging and rewarding. I hope to continue learning new skills and creating art for a long time.
