About Me

Welcome to my little corner of nature!

I’m Carolyn Allen, Artist, Country Girl and Lifelong Naturalist

I love and learn from nature and through my art and blog, I share the beauty, wonder and intrigue of the natural world that surrounds all of us.  If you need a “five minute vacation” to refocus your heart and mind… that what my art can bring you.  

I grew up on an organic farm and have been an avid naturalist all my life with gardening, feeding backyard birds, creating habitat and just sitting to absorb the “spirit of nature” 

That “Spirit Of Nature” is my major theme in art and writing.  If you share that interest, I invite you to subscribe to my inspiring blog “The Spirit of Nature” … and of course, add some of my art to your home or workplace. And consider it as a gift for others who enjoy nature’s wonder.

I am largely a self trained artist and writer who builds on my farmgirl background, my work as a graphic designer, creative director, magazine editor and website publisher to shape the stories of nature that I share in words and visuals. 

I both create digital paintings and acrylic originals, and my art is available at this time as high quality prints through this website. I will be expanding my art formats in the near future. 

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.

I look forward to sharing our love of nature! Please correspond with me…I love to visit, and answer any questions you have about my work from my heart! 

Carolyn Allen



Inspiration

I’m inspired by nature’s wonders… from the tiniest seed to the tallest mountain! And I get so excited sharing nature through visuals and words… that I wiggle! I love a touch of humor, too! I see humor in nature too… my doggie and I have so much fun together and he actually grins at me! 

To me, Art is a form of communication, so that is why I both paint and write about nature. Beauty is just the surface… understanding comes from context and conversation. Let’s explore our world together!

Techniques

I’m lifelong creative journey has included forays into music, sculpture, gardening, woodcraft, ceramics, quilting, original printmaking, oil painting, acrylics and now… my medium of choice is digital painting, drawing and writing.  Only my brush has changed… my lifelong exploration and storytelling about nature continues its journey!  I hope you join me! 

career highlights

My first job in communications was at a radio station at which I wrote advertising copy and had a five minute “women’s newscast”… it was so long ago that women’s voices were not welcome on radio!  

Since then I studied humanities, art history, studio art skills, writing and photography both in classes and on my own. I LOVE learning! 

My current art studio practice is digital photography, digital paintings, some acrylic originals, drawing, quilting and fabric arts… and rock collecting! 

I will share many of my works of art and nature essays with my subscribers, so I hope you join the fun and natural stories. 

Beautiful Content with meaning.

Visuals plus stories! I tell you the story of my art pieces so you can enjoy the context with me… and pass along the stories of natural wonder to your family and friends. 

Responsive.

I’m very active in Facebook as a discussion leader about nature, values,, citizenship and community concerns. 

I will be expanding the “Carolyn Allen Artist” page to focus on art.  

I will also be adding live “Art Shows” in the near future to foster discussion about nature and art.  I hope you subscribe so you will be notified about these growth spurts!
