Carolene Callahan Herbel is a distinguished contemporary painter and writer based in Taos, New Mexico. She studied art at Kansas State University, New Mexico State University, and the University of New Mexico-Taos.
She has been creatively and prolifically engaged as a painter for over fifty years. She paints to capture the excitement she feels from the landscape and cultures of New Mexico.
Carolene is a folk art aficionada whose favorite painting styes are impressionism and expressionism. Her admiration of the great Vincent Van Gogh is clearly evident in her paintings. As a colorist, she loves high color and isn't afraid to use it. "I love the secondary colors: purple, orange, and blue green," she admits. In the past, Carolene has painted with acrylics but now prefers to use water-based oils because of the richer colors.
