Carolyn Steele lives and works in the Virgin Islands, where she paints watercolours of indigenous flora and fauna.  Inspired by the colour, diversity and beauty of the region, her richly-textured images contain composites of things a nature-lover might see on a morning's walk or an afternoon's snorkel.  Carolyn is committed to wildlife education and conservation, and hopes her artwork will enlighten as well as decorate.  She sees her paintings as love-letters to the tropics - a celebration of the colourful and exotic Caribbean islands.
