Hazel Caldwell



From the Artist: 


For Hazel Caldwell—renowned studio artist, professor, and certified art therapist—painting is a study in the art of relationships. “I can’t say I’ve ever truly been completely happy with a painting; when I think I am at a place of peace with one, something always changes.”


“Art is important, and it’s going to be my life’s struggle to explain why.”


Her travels not only inspired a love of figure painting but a passion for landscapes as well. “I love open air, water, and skies,” she says.


Hazel’s professional career began one day in the Charleston market, where the young College of Charleston student sat painting and drew the attention of a local business owner. Impressed by her talent, he commissioned a series on the spot.
