Carol Schwartz-Medina is a storyteller. Drawn in part from real life, and in part from fantasy, her work addresses issues of love and desire. She often uses the human figure and animals to tell stories about romantic relationships. The narrative quality of her low fire sculptural work lends itself well to drawing, and she also puts imagery onto functional pieces that are high fired. Carol received her BFA in ceramic arts from Texas State University in 2002, and her MFA in ceramic arts with a minor in printmaking from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in 2005. She has been making work ever since. She maintains an active studio at home and is an owner/member of 218 Co-op Gallery in San Marcos, TX.
