Biography from the Archives of askART

The following information was submitted in July of 2006 by the artist:

Born in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, Carolyn Hutchings Edlund began her painting career focusing on the New England landscape.
Raised in Rhode Island, art was an obsession in her developmental years.  At the age of eleven she began formal study with the late Charles Gordon Harris.  She received a Bachelors Degree from the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI.  Following graduation she moved to the Mid-Hudson Valley in New York State where formal education continued under the tutelage of Nguyen Tri Minh, Franklin Alexander (Woodstock, NY), and the Art Students League.
In the early 1980s she moved to Buckinghamshire, England where she lived for four years. Frequent excursions to London's art museums afforded time for studying the great masters. While a resident there, her paintings were exhibited at galleries and commissions were undertaken.
She is known for intimate romanticism in landscapes. She was highly influenced by the Hudson River School of painters, in particular George Inness, Albert Bierstadt, William Trost Richards, and the drawings of Albrecht Durer.
Her paintings are in collections in Canada, England, Germany, France, Italy, and the United States.
