About Carol McDermott

Originally from Newcastle upon Tyne, Carol works from her cottage in the North Pennines in the UK. Carol’s ability to produce both abstract and figurative work is outstanding, her landscape paintings are deeply personal, they have an underlying sense of mystery and a mystical relationship with nature. They are intuitive, immediate, true and soulful. Her abstracts are striking, intriguing and resemble abstract talismans full of the right type of energy.
Carol uses only professional quality art materials and regarding her most recent work she stretches her own canvas using Italian fine artists linen. Carol says: “After painting for 32 years I still find it an extremely exciting and magical process. My paintings are a mystery to me and I wouldn’t have it any other way ” ...
