Carolene's love of Folk Art, color and New Mexico are reflected in her paintings. I love to add native women, the sun, and the beautiful adobes and churches of New Mexico to my paintings. Enjoy my art.

Carolene Herbel is a Taos, New Mexico artist / painter who works with acrylics and oils in her paintings of the southwest. Inspired by the northern New Mexico colors and culture, she paints the local scenery, landscapes, architecture, lifestyles, plants and animals around her.

Her use of vibrant colors and strokes reflect the changing light and textures found across the high desert of northern New Mexico. She particularly likes to paint the churches and adobes of the area, oftentimes adding women figures in front of the doorways, portraying them as iconic figures. Otherwise she paints as her whims take her, with a light touch and genuine inspiration from the community and surrounding area she lives in.
