Biography


Biography

 
 
Carol Peek is a native Californian who drew, trained and rode horses from the pacific coast through the Sierra Nevada mountains. Her desire to become an artist led her to ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, CA where she graduated in 1987. While raising two children, Carol continued painting for her galleries and art shows and her interest and desire for more knowledge brought her to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA to earn a Master’s Degree in Fine Art Painting in 2021.
 
Sacred geometric armatures now inform her work as she paints with a limited palette, creating complex design relationships and subtle color harmonies.  Galleries in San Francisco and New York City have represented her work and numerous one woman and museum group shows fill her resume. A participant in the Art in Embassies Program, her work is shown as far away as Luxembourg and Azerbaijan. Collectors include Art Garfunkel, Joseph Feinnes, Kit and Arnold Palmer and the Ritz Carlton Hotel.
