About the artist: After studying art at Western Maryland College, Jo Carol dabbled in art projects throughout her years as a peripatetic Army spouse and the mom of two fabulous daughters, the most notable being the metamorphosis of a rural medical clinic in Plato, Missouri, into a cozy home. Upon settling in Colorado Springs in 1996, she began pursuing art and taking numerous classes and workshops. In 2000, she took a headlong plunge to make the “artist” title official by renting her first studio, and 17 years later, she now creates art at Cottonwood Center for the Arts, along with the 80 other artists who have studios there. Jo Carol has frequently taught art to students of all ages– from preschoolers to senior citizens. She most recently taught art to developmentally disabled adults for two years. In her own art, Jo Carol delves into psychological issues as a way of processing life’s vicissitudes. Her art has been juried into numerous shows in Colorado Springs, including several solo shows. Her work graces collections across the country, especially in states where her relatives reside. About “Holes in My Heart” The heart, that which pumps life-blood throughout our body, has become over the centuries a symbol of the central wisdom of feeling as opposed to the head wisdom of reason.

NOW that’s what I call art
This art is a wonderful example of art from this period of art production. Some say its the best of those arts while others reserve judgement. First painted by world renowned art guy “Arty” it has since been aged like fine wine and had a fancy frame put around it to enhance its aesthetic assault on your taste.
Birds of a Feather
Put together as a tribute for the great “hair de jur” of 1890 this piece features exquisite use of water color, crayon color, and sun color, truly displaying the mastery of the artist and his wide range of talents. The authors identity remains a mystery to this day but some say it was the work of a poor farm boy in the Mississippi Delta who learned to read by way of twig bundling.
