Welcome to Artists With Altitude

We are a group of dedicated women artists based in Evergreen, Colorado, a mountain community outside of Denver. We have been working and growing together as artists for over six years.

We meet on a regular basis and often paint together, experiment with new mediums, visit each others' studios and even travel together in pursuit of our artistic path.

We work in a variety of mediums including oil, pastel, water color, acrylic, mixed media, clay, metal and fiber art. We participate in gallery events throughout Evergreen and the Metro Denver area.

Upcoming Show

Please join us for our opening reception on January 20th, at Center for the Arts Evergreen.

With an obsession to spend a night alone in Machu Picchu and communicate with Los Dios, a spirited young woman pursues adventure in Peru in 1958. What begins with Carolyn's first teaching job in Lima becomes a ten year commitment working and raising a family in South America during the Cold War years, when Communism was a dangerous threat around the world.

Through a series of humorous vignettes, we follow Carolyn's romances: engagement to a Swede with a motorcycle; then finding Russ, the true love of her life, whom she marries after a three-week courtship and only one date. Together, after hitchhiking through South America and experiencing the realities of the Third World and anti-American propaganda, the couple begins growing up.

The story is a small piece of history, a nostalgic glimpse of an era when morals were strict, ideals were high, and optimism kept us strong.

Carolyn's book may be purchased by contacting her directly at 303-674-1330.
