ABOUT THE ARTIST AND TEACHER
Carolyn Bruno Havrilla

A Bucks County Impressionist by birth, training, and tradition, her affinity for art showed early winning her first blue ribbon at the Yardley Clothesline ArtShow for Youth. She then trained privately under Judy Wagner, AWS, formerly of Bucks County. It was during these years that she developed not only the wet-on-wet watercolor technique that is her signature, but also her drawing skills and love of color, movement, and the captivating Bucks County landscape. Formally trained in both the USA and Italy with a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art, this autodidactic and faith-filled artist grows and expands her skills as she unsheathes the essence of nature's creations. She works mostly for a commission.

Havrilla now also paints in oil in tribute to her beloved friend, and one-time student, the nationally recognized “Pennsylvania School” artist, Evelyn Faherty (1919-2015.) They spent more than 15 years painting side-by-side, Faherty in oil and Havrilla in watercolor. Havrilla is very proud of these intimate painting outings and is humbled every time she recalls Evelyn’s words:
“You’re the best darn watercolorist I’ve ever seen, Carolyn, keep going!”
