Carolyn Riddell was born in Kitchener in 1961. She completed a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Guelph specializing in printmaking, painting and art history. Her work is represented in public, private and corporate collections in North America, Europe and Asia. She maintains her studio practice and framing facilities in Guelph, Ontario. Carolyn’s current research, studio production and exhibition opportunities have been in central and northern India.
Carolyn’s current exhibition ‘Auric’ stems from a desire to engage with the visceral world of materials while accessing various processes, including printmaking and drawing, to discern and distill memory of place, structure and environment. Wood blocks and copper plate are her printmaking springboards.
