Carol Randell

As Carol V. Boyd, she was born in Marylebone, London in April 1947, daughter of Gerald Glanfield Boyd (1914-1980) and his wife Anna Katharine née Randell, who married at Hendon, London in 1941. Carol moved to Suffolk in 1958 and was educated at Amberfield School near Ipswich and at Ipswich Art School 1963-1965, being taught by Colin Moss [q.v.], Bernard Reynolds [q.v.] and by Lawrence Self [q.v.]. Her studies continued at De Montfort University, Leicester where she graduated with a BA (hons) in Fashion/Textiles. Initially a fashion designer then a lecturer, before becoming a full time professional artist, producing artwork, interior designs and murals for galleries, corporate and private clients. Carol had a solo exhibition in 1997, which prompted further shows and commissions from private clients. After a time in Somerset, she moved to Herefordshire and in 2004 Carol refocused on her art, being inspired by the local landscape but continuing with flower studies and with her observation of shapes found in landscapes and flowers, enabled her to capture a combination of the literal and the abstract which resulted in colourful watercolours. Carol has exhibited at Applestore Gallery. Hereford; Hereford Painting Group at H.Art; Crickhowell Open exhibition; Weavers Gallery, Ledbury and her art is on show at The Lion Gallery, Broad Street.
