Carol Woodin

b.1956, Salamanca, NY

Working in New York State, Carol Woodin uses vellum, processed animal hide used for over 2000 years in the pre-printing age, to construct botanical artworks that bridge the past with the present. Specializing in rare plants, mainly orchids, Woodin creates stylistic interpretations of plant-life, emphasizing her relationship with the natural world. As a demonstration of her commitment to that world, she serves as the Director of Exhibitions of the American Society of Botanical Artists, helping to organize many exhibitions of botanical art in and outside the United States. In 1995 she was awarded a Gold Medal by the Royal Horticultural Society of England and in 1998 she received the "Bouchier Award for Excellence in Botanical Art" from the American Society of Botanical Artists.
