The Two Brothers Framed

Carol Grigg draws her inspiration from nature and primitive art. She married young and moved to a remote area in southern Oregon where she created a home in a cabin. Grigg had farm animals, and many pets, including a baby crow named Hannibal. She shared her property with bear, mountain lion, deer, poachers and hunters.

In her own words, Grigg says, “I explore a variety of creative forms; watercolor, oil, collage, clay, inks, music and poetry- anything I can easily and quickly get my hands on. I am influenced by primitive art, especially from the earliest cave paintings. The images I bring forth are surrounded by space and create a suspended moment in which one might rest. In this I would wish for the ideas of ecstasy, intuition, love and awareness in nature, healing power and spiritual unity to surface into the consciousness of the observer – participant. It is the Great Mother energy I am expressing.” Grigg, who is part Cherokee Indian, certainly has become at peace with the nature around her.

Her posters and lithographs hang in places from Big Sur to the Cairo Hilton. Her work has been featured at Art Expo in New York and is sold in Scottsdale through Joan Cawley Gallery Ltd. “For me the whole idea of being here on the physical earth is to succeed and give at the same time. Many of us have the means to make a difference.”
