Grace Carol Bomer

Born:  Alberta, Canada 

Carol received a B.A. in 1970 in Secondary Education in English and History from Dordt College in Iowa and returned to Alberta to teach sixth grade, and High School art and French for six years. Her art career began after moving to  Kansas, where she worked professionally as a painter from 1976-1981. She studied art in Kansas and continued to study at UNCAsheville after moving to North Carolina in 1981.  Carol is involved locally with a studio in Asheville's popular River Arts District, and nationally and internationally. Last year she taught a mixed media workshop at Luxan Fine Art Academy in Shenyang, China. 

Carol's work seeks to evoke both image and impression, the tangible world and the spiritual world. Her work has been called "a silent form of poetry." She views her work as "a form of play rejoicing before the face of God" (Rookmaaker). This is reflected in the name of her Asheville studio, SOLI DEO GLORIA STUDIO.
