Carol Krauss is a fine art photographer based at (Emerson) Umbrella Center for the Arts in Concord, Massachusetts and at AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH. She has exhibited at galleries and juried competitions throughout New England including the Photographic Resource Center, Concord Art Association, Griffin Museum, Brush Gallery, Firehouse Center, and Emerson Umbrella, among others.
She has published four photography-based books for the children’s educational market through Millbrook Press. Other periodicals that have published her work include Rowing News, Harvard Medicine Magazine, and Spiritus Journal.
Carol studied at New England School of Photography in Boston, MA in its workshop program. She has also studied with John Sexton, Jonathan Singer, Mac Holbert, Kim Weston, and others. She was an Assistant Teacher for the Black & White classes at NESOP, taught at the Concord-Carlisle Adult Education program, and continues to teach privately in her Concord studio. She also provides freelance photography and consulting services for artists, galleries, organizations and publications.
More recently, Carol has been moving into mixed media, first combining her photography with encaustic, then adding cold wax painting to her repertoire. From straight B&W photography to color abstract painting—it has been quite a journey.
Carol has an MBA from the Tuck School at Dartmouth College and previously worked as a management consultant. Currently, she consults to nonprofits through Community Consulting Teams of Boston and Social Venture Partners of Boston, as well as serving on nonprofit boards.
When not behind a camera, she can be found rowing, hiking, tap dancing, or on a beer run with her dog!
