About Carol Guzman

Carol Guzman was born in St. Louis, Missouri, but she lived, worked and studied in New York City and the Hudson Valley for thirteen years earning a bachelor's degree in Art and Art History. She studied Old Masters' techniques at Parsons School of Design, and painted portrait commissions, landscapes and still lifes in her Tribeca studio. She also worked as a freelance editorial illustrator. In 1990, Guzman moved west.


She now lives in the foothills outside Bozeman, Montana, with her husband, artist Clyde Aspevig. She has traveled extensively and prefers to paint on location or from life in her studio. Her paintings reflect her love of Old Masters' techniques with glazing and scumbling, and she combines that with direct alla prima techniques. She loves the freshness of a quick study but prefers to work on her paintings over the course of many sessions to obtain the layering of color and texture one can't achieve with alla prima painting.


Guzman's work has been included in the Masters of the American West Show at the Autry Museum, the Bradford Brinton Memorial Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming, the University of Wyoming Art Museum, the Scottsdale Artists School, the Sangre de Christo Art Center, the Forbes Museum Gallery in New York City, the Coors Western Art Exhibit in Denver, Colorado, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, the Loveland Museum in Colorado, and the Haggin Museum in Stockton, California. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia.
