Carol Dewart attained a BA(Hons) in Drawing and Painting from Glasgow School of Art in 1981 and was the winner of the Emmy Sachs Award and the John and Mabel Craig Award. During her Post Graduate year at G.S.A in 1982 under the tutelage of renowned painters, David Donaldson, James Robertson and Geoff Squires, she was awarded a traveling scholarship
Carol was born in Scotland in 1957. She lives in Cardross, Argyll/Bute and as a landscape painter, it is from this ever-changing landscape that she takes her inspiration
Carol also studied Embroidery and Weaving for one year and this has had a major influence on her work. By integrating the use of various mediums, textiles and stitch work, her paintings strive to give a more textural observation of the landscape.
