Carolyn Frischling studied oil painting with Robert Ault, one of the architects of art therapy. At Grinnell College, she studied drawing and printmaking under Bobbi McKibbin, graduating with a degree in French. She made unique prints with Peter Marcus, Joan Hall, and Dawn Guernsey at Washington University in St. Louis, and graduated with an MFA in printmaking in 1993. In St. Louis, Carolyn was influenced by art therapist, psychotherapist, and author, Dr. Gong Shu, a friend of her early teacher Robert Ault. Carolyn and her husband Michael started a family and moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she focused her artistry playing Early music on the harp. In 2009, Carolyn was accepted as a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, a group begun in 1910, whose members have included artists Mary Cassatt, Phillip Pearlstein, and Andy Warhol. Carolyn has exhibited at Mendelson Gallery, The Gallery 4, Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery, Gallery13, LACDA, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, PULSE!
