Since moving to Southern Utah in 2010, Carol Bold has not only embodied the spirit of the Southwest, she has lived it. She has traveled its winding trails, explored its rough terrain, traversed vast plateaus and broad basins, gazed up towering canyon walls, climbed through deserts of painted rocks, and looked down on the world from the clouds above. Through her vivid use of color, her iconic imagery and her eye for the dramatic, she sets out to capture the beauty of the southwest in way its never been seen.
Carol is a fine artist and printmaker currently living and working in St George, Utah. She grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area where she attended the SF School of the Arts High School before receiving her BFA in 2007 from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland.
She has exhibited her work in numerous shows and galleries throughout Southern Utah, California and Maryland.
When not in her studio, Carol spends her time hiking, exploring and drawing inspiration from the vast and beautiful landscape that surrounds her.
