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
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
