Carol Collette was born in Toronto, Canada and graduated with honors from the Ontario College of Art there. Her career path took her to Quebec City, where she met her future husband John Collette and in 1968 she moved to his hometown of Boston.
It was in their travels to the major museums of Europe, early in their marriage that they became fascinated by the technique of etching, with its delicacy of detail and richness and variety of tone, and were inspired to direct their art toward the medium of etching.
Upon returning from Europe, Carol began a series of pen and ink sketches of Cape Cod which served as the foundation for her early etchings. Living and working in rural New England, surrounded by familiar and favorite subjects, Carol began working on her etching technique, increasing her knowledge and control over one of the most demanding mediums.
From the beginning, Carol painted her etchings with watercolor; and this makes each print different, her editions are classified as unique editions. Carol Collette has established an international reputation. In 1981 she was commissioned by The Franklin Mint to do a Four Seasons Suite of her hand painted etchings which was sold in America and Europe with outstanding success. Since 1985 Carol's artwork has been shown in Japan and in May 2001 she traveled there for the third time, where eleven shows were held in her honor.
Eager to visit new places and find new subjects, she has done etchings of many areas of the country. Carol Collette is looking toward a long and happy future as on of Americas most enduring and popular artists.
