Carolyn Meyer was born in Bakersfield, CA. She earned both BFA and MFA degrees from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Since 1995, Meyer has been teaching painting, and in parallel, has been exhibiting her work. She is currently the Director of the School of Fine Art Painting for BFA and MFA students at the Academy of Art University. In 2019, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate Degree by the Academy of Art University. Also, she has served as a Juror for the Sausalito Art Festival for eleven years.
Over the last 25 years, Meyer has been exhibiting in many solo and group shows. Her work can be found in private and public collections, such as the Riverside Art Museum, Riverside, Falkirk Cultural Center, San Rafael, White & Case, New York, John Swire & Sons, London, Margaret Hearst, San Francisco. Her work has been featured in such publication as American Art Collector Magazine, SouthWest Art Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, The Daily Femme, and Marin Independent Journal.
Meyer’s work is a mixture of nature and emotion expressed through shape, form, color, and design. Her paintings draw the viewer into an engaging dialogue between realism and abstraction. Flowers and objects appear in unique compositions that push the representation back and forth between what is and isn’t real, like the movement of light and shadow and the effect on color. The abstraction aims to combine color and form while leaving traces of history behind. This is seen in the layers of paint that show a timeline of the process.
