Carolyn Busenlener

Artist's Bio

A New Orleans native, Carolyn Busenlener moved to

Mississippi where she now has a studio on a peaceful bayou

overlooking a pond. Previously she obtained her B.F.A. from

Tulane and pursued further education at IJ.N.O. and at the

New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. She has also participated

in various workshops around the United States and Europe.

Carolyn had an apprenticeship under abstract painter Evert

Witte as part of the Artworks Program in 2009-2010. She

also received a Visual Arts Fellowship from the Mississippi

Art Commission for 2009-2010.

Texture, gestural brush strokes and palette knife marks are

important elements in the artist's oil paintings. When

working with acrylic paint Carolyn's paintings show her

experimentation with layering, scraping, mark making, and

various texture medium. Presently she is working on several

series; a tree series in oils, an abstract series and a

waterscape series in acrylic. Hundreds of her paintings,

drawings and monoprints are owned by collectors in New

Orleans, Mississippi and throughout the United States. These

are a must for collectors of abstract and expressionism.
