Photography as a Paintbrush
A professional photographer and artist since 1975, Carol Everhart Roper is most drawn to our natural environment, and has captured images from all across North America, the Caribbean and England. In addition to straight photography, Carol’s work takes complimentary images and blends them to create a world of whispers, tactile, emotional and provocative, making the photograph itself work as a tool - as paint and brush - to reveal the world inside her.
Carol's giclée limited edition artworks are individually printed on acid-free, archival quality specialty papers, using eight colors of pigmented inks.
“I have always found nature to be beautiful and awe-inspiring. In my work, I combine images from nature and my travels which, to me, present a sense of wonder and delight. I think of them sometimes as similar to the mental images I have when reading a rich novel... multifaceted and complex yet simple and emotionally touching. If I can make the viewer feel curious, intrigued and perhaps even transported to another place and time, then I will have succeeded in my artistic goals.”
