Carol Berger has lived in a variety of places with most of her adult life spent in Southern California. Her art education began with her artist grandparents and various classes at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Berger has a double major in Art and Spanish from the College of Wooster and spent a year focusing on art history at the University of Madrid with side trips to France and Italy.
After retirement from a career as a public school teacher, Berger took a ceramics class which led to a second career as a professional artist. Currently she teaches ceramics classes to adults and children in her studio and shows her work in the Houston area. She joined Archway Gallery in 2018.
Berger draws inspiration from the designs, colors, and textures in nature. As an environmentalist and avid recycler, it is her hope that art reflecting nature will encourage other people to care for it too.
