Carol Spohn


Carol's painting journey started in 1989 when she learned to paint with acrylics during her lunch hour at the office where she worked. If not for the step-by-step process of decorative painting, she would not have been introduced to the world of painting. In 2000, Carol started painting primarily in transparent watercolor and her teaching career was launched. Carol is an Ambassador for Mission Gold Watercolor by Mijello and paints primarily with watercolor accented with multimedia.

Carol's workshop is a perfect opportunity for the beginner painter as well as the experienced painter to learn techniques enabling them to complete successful paintings. Carol shares her step-by-step approach to painting with students of all levels.

The creative backgrounds in Carol's paintings set her artwork apart from other artists. Her use of color and textures invite you into her joyful paintings. Each lesson is designed to introduce the student to a new technique or way of looking at art. Students paintings are successful when they “trust the process” of Carol's methodical instructions. No two paintings are alike, and that is a good thing!

Carol recently retired to be a full time artist and instructor. Painting is her joy and often times, her therapy. As much as she enjoys painting, Carol's first love is teaching painting to others. Carol is a popular instructor at decorative painting conventions sharing her joy of painting with watercolors and other media to students throughout the North America each year.

A lifetime resident of Minnesota, Carol lives in a 125+ year old house in Saint Paul, Minnesota with her husband Coz and their two cats, Mickey and Bailey.
