Carolyn Grady grew up on the New Jersey shore, fell in love in Ann Arbor, MI, taught in Mumbai, India for one year, and currently paints and writes poetry in Fredonia, NY. Grady received a B.Ed. from Seattle University and an MA in English from the State University of New York at Fredonia. Subsequently, she taught English and Meditation/Relaxation at SUNY Fredonia.
Grady came to art late in life, during a lull in her writing career, studying drawing and painting with Buffalo artist, Raymond Bonilla, and Fredonian Alberto Rey.
She is most often inspired by atmospheric effects in landscapes, psychological nuances of interior scenes, and un-selfconscious views of people while exploring a range of expression and vision, though color continually resounds as a primary tool for emotional engagement.
A member of Western New York Artists Group and the North Shore Arts Alliance, Grady exhibits widely receiving First Place in the 28th Annual Regional Artists Exhibition at AG Gallery, Buffalo NY.
