After retiring from teaching in the Detroit area, Carol Ross started on a new road.  Before teaching she developed her artistic skills  while working on her M.A. in technical theatre at Wayne State Universtiy, and then added to her understanding of art at Center for Creative Studies as she studied Industrial Arts with a Contract Interiors focus. When retired she continued to take art classes in  oil painting from  the  most successful contempory artists.  California's Ken Auster gave her an introduction to oil Plein Air on the streets of Chicago, and in Vermont, Eric Aho lead her to a new approach to landscape painting.   California's Plein Air Society's  members, Betty Billups and Jeanette Le Grue both freed Carol to paint with the suggestive brush of the impressionists in clear, bright colors.

Carol is an colorist who uses bold impressionistic strokes and intense hue to create her over scale images. Carol loves gardening, so many of her subjects are flowers from her garden. Her still lifes have an unique persective that gives her work a unique modern twist. She takes pleasure painting on site or in her studio the depictions of Northern Michigan, as well Canada.

Carol is invited yearly to exhibit her paintings at many juried art shows and is shown in galleries in Upper Michigan.
