Carol Berrey

This series of paintings began with portraits solely of nuns.  I lived in Italy for twelve years and even though I was not Catholic I came to know many Catholic nuns.  My paintings take a whimsical look at the Sisters lives and personalities to capture their gentleness and joie de vivre.

As the series expanded, I branched out form the nun to explore the other women's spirituality.  In a class on classical mythology I reconnected with Diana goddess of the hunt and moon.  I was drawn to women who felt an affinity for the moon and its power.  My latest exploration includes women who sense a spiritual connection with animals, in particular felines.

I am not a deeply spiritual person, but I hope that my viewers will realize how respectfully, yet playfully I approach this subject matter.  If so, they too can enjoy the gentle quirkiness of these spiritual sisters.
