Carolyn Anderson is a nationally recognized watercolorist known for her distinctive impressionistic style. Her paintings, reproductions and commemorative posters have broadened the public's perception of the Brandywine tradition.
Carolyn earned her BFA degree from Syracuse University where she received the Marion Jones award- the university's highest honor for excellence in design. She worked in New York as a designer for the textile and wall coverings industry for several years before returning to Wilmington, Delaware to pursue her career as a professional artist.
Known as a master at depicting the festive atmosphere of special events, Anderson was the first official poster artist for the Wilmington Flower Market. Many other event commissions have included the McDonald's LPGA Championship, Winterthur's Point-to-Point and the Tour DuPont cycling races. She has created posters for some of the world's most famous marathons in nearly every major city including Boston, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and abroad, in London.
Although she paints in many locations including Italy, France, California and Maine, Anderson could be described as Wilmington's resident artist. She is a past president of the Studio Group, a membership-based organization founded in 1935. The group holds frequent exhibits and solo shows at the Howard Pyle Studios, where Anderson paints and gives watercolor workshops and demonstrations.
