 Painter      Sonoma County     OLi Gallery   

Carole Watanabe

Carole’s rich diverse and colorful journey has included the establishing of the first nationally recognized Gallery for the Fiber Arts in San Francisco as well as founding the Apprentice Alliance (a non-profit organization dedicated to placing apprentices with masters in all fields of endeavor).

Most importantly she has had a life-long commitment to creating supportive communities that nourish the wild art spirit in all of us. Her tapestries, sculptural handmade paper works and paintings hang in private collections, hotels, banks, hospitals and corporate offices across the country and around the world.


“A work of art is the soul inhaling the colors of passion and getting drunk on the vibrations of diffused light."

— Carole Rae Watanabe
