Carol Granger is from a small farming community in southern Indiana. Her fondness for the open countryside led to her interest in art at an early age. She continued her education at Purdue University where she studied art education and interior design. Professional work after college took her into the field of health care design. Marriage and children brought about a second career in fine arts, allowing her to work from home.

Carol first worked in colored pencil and now works almost exclusively in oil. Her love of the outdoors continues to inspire her oil landscapes and the simple beauty of everyday objects are thoughtfully represented in her still lifes. She has shown her work and won awards in juried shows in the midwest and internationally. Her works are sold locally in Columbus and on the internet.

Carol currently lives and works in the Worthington, OH area with her husband and Labrador Retriever, Logan. They have two grown children.
