Since the age of eight, Carol King Hood has been creating art with her own distinctive style.  At a young age, she was a student of renowned artist Freida Leibowitz Reiter, and credits this time as her student as the most impactful education in her life.  She continued her studies at the Philadelphia College of Art.  Carol considers herself fortunate to have learned and perfected her color palette from Cape May’s own, Alice Steer Wilson.  Cape May, New Jersey is not only her home, it is also Carol’s muse since her first visit at age twelve.  As a plein air painter, she may be spotted painting the stunning scenes of Cape May, from the city streets, to the diversity of the people, the harbor, and dramatic skies.   An impressionist at heart, Carol King Hood is versatile in her painting style and has the ability to move from impressionism to realism with ease and in all mediums.  Her work is currently on display at SOMA Gallery and Willow Creek Winery, where she is the artist in residence and art teacher.  From her children’s book “Saving Higbee” to her impressive catalog of work, Carol King Hood is a treasured regional artist. Her work is in collections of corporations, hospitals and countless private collectors.
