Anne Walluk Community Room

Please visit the Anne Walluk Community Room to see pieces by local artist, Carol Jaspersohn.

Carol Jaspersohn was born and raised in London, England.  Her interest in art began as a young child and she started painting when she was a young girl.

She met Tom, her future husband, in London while he was stationed overseas in the U.S. Air Force.

Carol and Tom married and had three children.  Shortly after their third child was born, the family moved to Tom’s hometown of Branford, Connecticut, and eventually settled in Bristol, where they raised their three children.  Although Carol was busy with the children and their activities, she always made time for her creative endeavors, including renovating their old Colonial house, much of it herself, while continuing to paint.

After numerous losses in her life, Carol returned to her passion of painting and has become quite a prolific painter and now paints daily.  She finds painting to be therapeutic and it provides her with a sense of peace.

Carol now lives in Bristol with her dog. She has found that the beauty of the natural setting that surrounds her now, and during her time living in Burlington, have inspired her art.  In recent years, she has been expanding her painting style to depict colorful and awe inspiring scenery.  Carol works entirely in acrylics, which she finds well suited to her spontaneity, and she hopes that you will enjoy viewing her paintings.

Carol can be reached at cazjas@comcast.net.
