Carol was an amazing artist and teacher and will be missed by so many people she touched. She demonstrated her watercolor techniques at our membership meetings and always left us with uplifting thoughts, both on watercolor painting and life. Her great sense of humor always made her so much fun to be with. She split her time living in St. Louis, Apalachicola, Florida and Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and offered workshops in all locations over the years.

Here are some photos a member shared with us of Carol in Boothbay Harbor during one of her last workshops there.

The STLWS will honor Carol Ann Jessen’s memory with a memorial award at our next annual juried exhibition.
