Carolyn Crump

Carolyn Crump captures the spirit and lifts it to new heights of imagination in fine art that is gaining national recognition.

Born in Detroit, Crump's artistic talent was nurtured from the age of eight by family and friends. She received an art scholarship to the Cranbrook College of Art, and earned a degree in Advertising Design. However, her restless creativity led her fine art, which she taught herself, medium by medium.

Working in diverse media, from acrylic paints, etchings, handmade paper, clay and wood to most recently, fabric and illustration. Crump defies illusionary boundaries to reflect a unique blend of wildness, freedom, and expression.

Her stunning quilts - sewn canvasses that tell powerful stories - are part of a national tour. Over the last year, she developed an illustration style that earned the national Gold prize from the Newspaper Association of America.

Her original paintings, prints and sculpture are sought after by collectors throughout the United States and Europe. As a working artist for the past 28 years, she continues to explore a style that is diverse as it is consistently striking.

Currently residing in Houston, Texas, Crump has been presented throughout North America and Europe in group and one-woman shows. Crurmp views her art as an expression of insight, strength and traditional love.
