Women's Health Partners


Here are a few watercolors of the work that's hanging in the WOMEN'S HEALTH PARTNERS. A doctor's clinic for women in St. Louis. They leased these paintings.. and over time the collection became their own.

I have heard from many people over the years about seeing the work. It was/is a very visible location.

This is only a small sampling of what is in the office. There are over 11 pieces.

That's a fine collection of your work Carol.
It's a testament to the enduring quality of your art.
11 years on and still looking contemporary!

Hi Carol,
You know, when I feel like giving up on watercolor, I visit your blog and websites. You are such an inspiration - proving that there is a market and appreciation out there for the watercolor media if you are a very good artist with a relevancy that extends over time. You, however, are not a "very good artist" - you are a great and gifted artist who encourages those of us striving to become better. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing all these with us Carol. I've already said many a time how I admire your figure work, but I can't describe how these organic shapes inspire me.
