This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Carol Grigg grew up and still lives in Oregon.  She draws inspiration from her Cherokee Indian heritage, nature, and primitive art.  She works in multiple media: watercolor, oil, inks, lithography, collage, clay, music, and poetry.

She is best known for desert-colored pastels depicting her signature Native American rider and horse, which symbolize Mother Earth.

Self taught, although her parents gave her much encouragement and the freedom to create and follow the example of her mother, who was also an artist, Carol may have inherited her distinctive technique through ages past. 

Carol keeps her painting techniques secret, "I discovered my own methods because I was uneducated and un-indoctrinated and so I experimented.  Anyone can do it. You have to get down on the floor with all kinds of material, throw them, mix them in every configuration until you understand what you've got and what you like."

Carol Grigg has also written and illustrated a book for children, The Singing Snowbear.  In it she explores the power of music to transform ordinary experiences in the lives of a polar bear and a beluga whale.  The illustrations are created in ethereal watercolor washes and yet are so powerful that the viewer is quite impressed with the strength and magnificence of her images. It is a fabulous book for grownups as well as children.
