Biography


Artist, Carolyn Zbavitel, lives in Raleigh, NC and is a member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina.  She developed her painting skills over the past 15 years.  Inspired by the work of watercolor artist Alvaro Castagnet, with whom she has studied, Carolyn prefers watercolor for its simplicity and allure.  Her unique aesthetic has developed under the guidance of several other master artists including Joseph Zbukvic, Herman Pekel, Carla O'Connor, Nicholas Simmons, Frank Webb,  Agnes Copeland, and Fealing Lin.  Carolyn also has over 35 credits of college art courses including a semester in Tuscany at the University of Georgia.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Italian and Russian languages from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Carolyn considers Southern California home where she previously enjoyed painting with Fallbrook Art Association, San Diego Watercolor Society, and Southern California Plein Air Painters. "I now devote most of my workable hours to painting.  My lane is watercolor, but I've ventured into nearly every medium that requires a brush.  I love to paint urban landscapes, portraits, cafes, and coasts around the world."
She shares her home and studio with her son, Cristopher and her partner Joe. Together, they invite you to enjoy her work.
