Carolyn Lankford

Carolyn Lankford

Carolyn has been a full time artist since 1990. She grew up in East Texas and was always interested in the visual arts.  The composition of many of her textured oil paintings will feel familiar to those who have spent time exploring Santa Fe.  Her subject matter is most often within a few blocks of the scenic and tranquil Canyon Road even though she lives at the very South end of New Mexico. To have a beautiful painting, always best to start the composition with a beautiful setting!
