Fairfield County native, Carol Calicchio’s ascent into the art world can be traced back to her family of artists and early education. Her mastery of abstract florals began several years after she graduated from the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID). A combination of painting and drawing studies at School of Visual Arts helped Carol realize her true passion was best expressed in the art she had been hanging in others’ homes as a designer. So, she set off on her own course, finding an artistic realm of her own through unique paintings that express rich energy palettes. Carol now resides in Delray Beach, Florida, and creates her colorful works in a spacious, inspiring studio on the banks of the intracoastal.
