Berkshire Botanical Garden's Center House Leonhardt Galleries
Nature Narratives — The Botanical Art of Carol Ann Morley is a retrospective collection of botanical art works presented in colored pencil, pen and ink, graphite, carbon dust and pastel.
A New Hampshire artist whose love of nature features the subjects she portrays, Carol Ann Morley was classically trained in England, graduating in 1963 from the Medway College of Art. Her art work has been represented in numerous private and public collections and museums including the Smithsonian Institute of Natural History, The Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, The Shirley Sherwood Collection, and the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in England.
Carol has taught basic drawing skills, drawing nature, and botanical drawing at Berkshire Botanical Garden since 1999. Her popular workshops focus on observation of the natural world and how to acquire the necessary drawing skills to create representational drawing.
