Welcome to My Studio

Located in beautiful Eugenia, Ontario, the Carrot House Art Studio is primarily a working studio, with select exhibit times throughout the year. The studio is always open to scheduled visits. (sorry, no drop ins!)

Having a dedicated space to create concepts and play with paint is my dream come true. Follow me on social media to see what’s on the easel, and find out about upcoming projects and events.

My Journey

While always having had a keen interest in general arts, my current focus is on capturing nature in its literal forms, or promoting botanical spirit through a more contemporary adaptation. The paint medium I work in most often is acrylic, which allows me to freely immerse myself in the application of colour and style (with a manageable drying time!)

I wake up each day with a flood of ideas to explore, and endless opportunities to showcase the beauty of the natural world around us.  

I hope you’ll join me on this journey!

Sincerely, Carolyn

About The Community

Spreading Colour Throughout The Region!

The Business Beautification Project supports local businesses by providing art on loan for a fixed term, at no cost to the business owner! This past year has been challenging for many people, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer a way to enhance the vibrancy of your clinic, office, shop or eatery, by providing a colourful backdrop to your services.

Please contact me at carolynwestfineart@gmail.com to discuss your space!

Past Events

Loft Gallery Square Foot Show

This popular Square Foot Show is held each years at the Loft Gallery in Thornbury.

This past year’s show was held online this year once again. Regardless of the change in format, sales have increased year over  year, and pieces moved quickly. Prices were perfect for purchasing art for your home or for gift giving.  Follow me for updates on this year’s event so you don’t miss out!

I was thrilled to be a part of this past year’s studio tour on Sept 25th and 26th, 2021. Artists from all over the region have participated in this showcase of local works.  (The ArtMap Tour is not running in 2022.)

Carrot House Studio is pleased to support the Collingwood Youth Centre, a safe space to socialize with friends and mentors where you will feel included and welcome. The Collingwood Youth Centre is for youth ages 12-18 to meet in a safe, supportive, and fun environment.

If you are visiting the studio for the upcoming Art Map Tour on the weekend of Sept 25-26th, I encourage you to bring along donation for the Collingwood Youth Center which would assist in providing the valuable services that they do for youth in our community.

Consider a non-perishable food item, or you desire to make a cash donation, a cheque can be made out to the Collingwood Youth Centre. Financial contributions would be used for feeding youth that visit the centre.
