"The Red Colt" by Carolyn Mock (oil)

Raised in the rural areas of Oklahoma and Arkansas, Carolyn Mock grew up in close contact with nature.  After completing a technical school course in commercial art, she worked for many years as a technical illustrator and designer.  

"After the Rut (the Bulls Gather)" by Carolyn Mock (oil)In 1985, Carolyn decided to turn a much loved hobby into a career, and began painting the wildlife she'd always admired.   "My choice of wildlife developed because of my firm belief that nature, as well as everything in it, has the right to exist. This accounts for my choice of realism as a style. This allows me to show the dignity of each individual animal plus the awe I feel for the animals I am painting.

Carolyn was chosen "Best of Show' at the Operation Wildlife Art Show in Overland Park, KS in 1996...and was featured artist at the same show in 1998, where she also won "Best of Show" for the Southwest category.
She is a member of Women in Nature, the National Association of Women Artists, and the American Academy of Women Artists.
