This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Carol Anthony was born in New York City in 1943.  She is an illustrator who was educated at Stephens College, Missouri and graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1966 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.  An exhibition of her three-dimensional figures at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts was the beginning of a successful career.

Anthony's intriguing characters often develop from a prop as simple as a pair of old shoes.  She works primarily in craypas on gessoed masonite, rubbing and blending the colors with her fingers.  The images are drafted layer by layer to create an unearthly light and dreamlike quality.  Her paintings are the means through which she conveys her internal visions.  They have an aura of expectation, of a place that has been prepared for a visitor who has not yet arrived, at once empty yet inviting.  She also creates beautiful collages, using small boxes and found objects, birds' nests and old letters.

Her work is part of the Hirschhorn Collection in Washington, DC as well as the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford, Connecticut.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Describing her Postcard series, Santa Fe artist Carol Anthony writes: "Each are the footnotes of that longer and larger love letter that we don't need to write. They are the old-fashioned sound byted and e-mail of today-but with a difference. They have two sides-one half being photo or illustration-the other half taking on the written word. For me, each represents the kinder gesture of melancholy and compassion, heart and humor."
