Artist Statement

Carolyn Crampton is a realist painter living in San Francisco. She was born in Larchmont, NY, and received her BFA from the University of Colorado. Crampton has exhibited in the bay area and national galleries and in many juried competitions. She is a faculty member of Expression College and teaches privately. Her still life paintings include her rabbits or another sentient animal with it's own thoughts gazing out at the viewer. The arrangement echoes classical hunting scenes but the addition of modern items, such as toys, brings up feelings about modern life and it’s “stuff”. Crampton works in an old school manner for the paintings. After a thumbnail sketch, the paintings are started directly on canvas with a brush. Crampton’s books “Rabbit Language or “Are you going to eat that“ and “Dumbunny” feature her drawings of rabbits and these involve a lot of charcoal, ink and Photoshop. ...
