Carol Beth Rodriguez currently works out of her studio in the coastal town of Solana Beach utilizing oil acrylic and mixed media.  Born in the Midwest she moved to California at a young age.  Inspired by the vibrant light and multicultural environment of the West Coast she incorporates a thoughtful blend of movement, shapes and color to set in motion an ethereal affect that piques perceptive reflection.  

Believing art is key to expression and growth in 2008 and 2009, Carol participated in “Hearts for Healing,” an art workshop at the Scripps Foundation in Encinitas, CA.

She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from San Diego State University.
