About Carol Seeley
The pleasure garnered from the touch of a piece of cloth has led Carol Seeley to create her art in fabric. She particularly enjoys the softness of touch of the cloth and the ability to depict details of the image with fibre and thread.
Seeley’s primary subject matter lies in exploring the beauty, frailty and devastation of the world in her own backyard, the passages and coves between Vancouver Island and the main land of Canada. Whether viewed from the vastness of the oceans and mountainous islands or the detail of an individual tree or bird, she feels blessed to be in this place at this time for the soul of this place lies in the life that lives and grows here. The orca, eagle and blue heron are also frequent images in her work as the solitary sentinel that guard this land.
Seeley’s coastal landscapes use value, colour and texture to create depth actual and/or perceived to invite the viewer into her world, real or imagined. She hopes that in viewing her work you to will feel the majesty and isolation of this once pristine place.
Her work has appeared in galleries and private homes in North America and Europe as well as several magazines and books. She has been juried into national and international quilt and art shows receiving awards regionally, nationally and internationally.
