Leaning Toward The Light


For Carolynn Doan, life is an ongoing investigation.

“The creation of art is a very magical experience. Although I have been educated in the very concrete disciplines of mathematics and biology, I continue to see life in non-traditional terms. My training definitely influences my subject matter, but it is the ‘muse’ that excites me and the wonders of life that compel me to paint. I am motivated by inspirational quotes, people, places and by the belief that any paradigm may be shifted by knowing that ‘life is not measured by the number of the breaths that we take but by the moments that take our breath away’ (Hilary Cooper). The creation of art is all about capturing those moments.”
