by Carolyn Osborne
Carolyn is primarily self- taught when it comes to her art. She attended the Art Institute of Seattle just after her daughter was born in 1990 for Layout & Production Art. In the early days she worked exclusively in watercolor, acrylic, ink and charcoal. Specializing in the human form, she would have two art shows per year for many years, through adulthood. Later she decided to buy a kiln and continues to also work in fused glass. Carolyn creates jewelry and other glass art.
Her painting has gone through many waves. Depending on her mood, Carolyn loves to create realistic charcoal and watercolors but also has delved into the mixed media arena with abstracts of great color and texture.
With the passing of her brother, she began Sacred Embers memorial works. Sacred Embers are one-of-a-kind fused glass items that include the ashes or hair of a beloved person or pet. She creates these after she gets to know the stories and memories in order to honor them with great dignity. Whether near or far the same love and care will always be given.
