Biography


Carol Drummond was born in Brooklyn, New York, grew up on Long Island and moved to Sarasota, Florida in 1975, where she lived and worked for twenty-five years. In 2000, she moved to Gainesville, Florida where she currently works in her studio inside her 1887 Victorian home, accompanied by her husband and two dogs.  She has two sons and four grandchildren living in the Tampa Bay area.

Carol began her art journey in Hawaii. She enrolled in drawing courses at the University of Hawaii. After returning to the Mainland, Carol continued her education at Munson-Williams-Proctor Art Institute in Utica, New York, the Art Institute of Chicago and Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. In Sarasota, she met Tatiana McKinney who became her artistic mentor for several years. 

Carol was already an accomplished award winning painter and mixed media collage artist when she started making art quilts in the early 1980ís.  She discovered that mixing fabric, paint and found objects brought her work to new dimensions. Myth, magic and fantasy are continuing themes.
