Through art Carolyn Beehler continues to explore the places she loves after her travels. Carolyn turns post-travel blues into positive new perspectives. Enlightened by the lives of people across the world, her artworks remind us that travel is more than escapism, that we should see new places and artifacts with extra detail and to fully absorb them until they become a part of us. Adventures that are slow, examined and permeated are always better than the hurried tours. Art and travel promotes improved, longstanding relationships with people and cultures. It’s true what Agnes Repplier said: “The impulse to travel is one of the hopeful symptoms of life.”
Carolyn Beehler graduated from O’More College of Design in 2009 and spent the next few years traveling, including a six-month stay in Shanghai. Currently based in Nashville, Carolyn is focusing on collections that meditate upon her travels. She is fascinated by collage’s endless textures, words and symbols that create layers of story and symbolism.
