The mystery of life is what I love, says multi-media artist Carol Kreider, who translates her passion for the abstruse into dreamlike paintings and monotype collages. Formally a resident of Connecticut, Kreider spent most of her life teaching and creating art before moving to California. With her move to the west coast, she brought along a vivid, unique interpretation of the spiritual and mysterious through paint and printmaking. Saturated with bright colors and fanciful characters (masquerade masks are a common theme), her artwork will be displayed at Laguna Beachs Sandstone Gallery for all to delight in.
