Carol John

Born in the USA and educated in Europe, Carol John spent her childhood in museums and art classes. Ms. John attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City and now resides in Athens, Georgia. For the last 20 years she has gone into her studio every morning at 8:30.

“When I am in my studio I try to push the colors into bursts of energy that explode on the canvas. I want my work to animate the space that it inhabits. It is this energy between the eye and the mind that interests me.”

Carol John is the consummate studio artist, rigorous in her practice and time, she produces a plethora of images and works of all scale. Her studio walls are consumed by wall to wall flower bursts, quote bubbles, geometric patterns and the brilliant color palette that Ms. John is known for.

Carol John’s work has been widely exhibited in the region and New York City. Such venues have included The Contemporary, Swan Coach House Gallery, Quinlan Art Center, the Hudgens Center for the Arts, Gainesville State College, and the University of Georgia. She is co-owner of D.O.C. Unlimited, a design build company in Athens as well as a member of Athens Design Development, an artist consortium whose mission is to infuse our environment with good design.
