Carl Bork

Born in Ohio, Carl Bork grew up drawing with the encouragement of friends and family early on. It wasn’t until high school that Carl began drawing from life. Carl began his training in painting at the Columbus College of Art and Design. The school’s rigorous foundation studies gave him the basis for his drawing and painting ideas. "At CCAD I learned to follow my heart and paint what moves me most. The school gave me the training to express myself in painting." The appreciation for the medium and the mood in a painting is important to Carl.
Now Carl lives in Salida, Colorado, where he opened his own studio / gallery in 2010. Carl enjoys painting the beautiful landscape in the Arkansas River Valley and is very grateful to be able to do the thing he loves to do and share it with people in his own gallery and in different gallery shows across the U.S.
