Limited Edition Print Artist - Carol Aldridge
Carol was born in England, but grew up in California. She’s lived in Gloucester for the past 20 years and works at the Main Street Library. She's loved painting since she was a kid, and her favorite thing to paint is water fowl. She donates some of her artwork to Ducks Unlimited so they can auction it to help raise money for water preservation. This is Carol’s second time as the winning artist for the Daffodil Festival.
