Carol Moffatt is a New Zealander living in Kaiapoi, North Canterbury, New Zealand. She has painted in the water colour medium for several years.
In the last 7 years she has attended the Mitchell School of the Arts Summer and Winter Schools at Charles Sturt University, Australia. Through these workshops she has concentrated on technique, inspired by Alvaro Castegnet, Joseph Zbukvic, Herman Pekel and Amanda Hyatt .
In 2013 Carol had her first solo exhibition at the Culverden Art Gallery in North Canterbury. Private buyers have also showed interest and purchased her water colours as well.
Most of Carol’s paintings and inspiration comes from the Canterbury landscapes. This includes flowers which emerge from the earthquaked landscape. Her studio is situated at her home and she welcomes visitors by appointment.
The world around me is where I draw my ideas and inspiration from. Trees, mountains and water together with plants and flowers that live in the environment create my water colour world. The Canterbury environment is blessed with all these attributes and I feel privileged to live and paint in it.”
