Description

Carol's design is inspired by the western themes she typically paints on canvas shoes. Her piano mural depicts the desert rains bringing life to the Sonoran cacti. 

Carol has been a Fort Collins resident since 1981. She finished her degree in Microbiology in 1983 and worked for Colorado State University in the Microbiology Department for several years during which she was accepted into the Veterinary School.

Carol has played the piano since she could sit on her mother’s lap. Her mother and grandmother were accomplished pianists. You will recognize Carol as one of the “regular” piano players of Old Town. 

Interestingly, she also happens to be an avid artist. She delves into working in all types of media. Painting a piano gives her the opportunity to explore both factions of her artistic ability.
