Carol L. Myers grew up in Baltimore, where she went to nursing school at the Johns Hopkins Hospital School of Nursing. Her first job as an RN took her to Ann Arbor, MI. The atmosphere of the college town inspired her to follow her longtime interest in art, first with classes at the Washtenaw Community College and later at the University of Michigan, where she earned her BFA in Printmaking. Since graduation she has mixed art, nursing, marriage and family.
Myers has been active at the Indianapolis Art Center as a student and teacher, and a Docent at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. She has shown in many national and regional shows, and has prints in several museum collections. She was awarded an Individual Artist Grant from the Indiana Arts Commission in 2000 and served in their grant review panel in 2001. She is currently the Curator for the Stutz Artists Association Partnership with Clarian Hospitals, bringing staff, patients and visitors into closer contact with the arts. Myers is the committee chair for the StutzArtSpace gallery, and offers workshops in the StutzArtSpace classroom. In addition to studio work, her mission is to promote the arts as a life-enhancing activity in medical and educational settings by facilitating shows and workshops
My work explores the internal landscape of spirit. Meditative pencil drawings explore the natural objects that fascinate me: shells, bones, fossils, bare trees and roots...the architecture of nature. These explorations form my personal constellation of image and meaning, and my work spins off from here, becoming richer with time and repetition.
