Carol Belliveau attended Parsons School of Design and had a successful career as an international award winning doll artist and designer before moving to the West Coast to focus on painting. Conversations with a Federal Judge about her vision of man’s relation to the land led to a commission to create a series of pastel paintings for the Federal Courthouse in Salinas, California. This collection, called “The Work We Do”, celebrates the beauty of the world’s most productive agricultural region as well as the daily lives of the people who work and live in Steinbeck Country. Belliveau was also commissioned by Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital to create a landscape series based on the vanishing scenes of rural San Benito County. She earned a BFA from Academy of Art University and is currently President of Monterey Bay Plein Air Painter’s Association (MBPAPA) as well as a member of Oil Painters of America, The Portrait Society of America, The American Impressionist Society, and the California Art Club. Her paintings are included in numerous private and public collections.
