Carolyn Sharon Goodridge
Founder, Chief Curator and Executive Director of Art Impact™
Carolyn is the Founder, Chief Curator and Executive Director of Art Impact™ USA, a non-profit organization based in Washington, DC. A practicing artist herself, Goodridge is fully dedicated to helping artists flourish and prosper as they, inspire and enrich humanity.
She founded Art Impact™ USA in 2015 and is now connected with more than 1600 artists in sixteen different countries, including Brazil, China, Greece, Guyana, Jamaica, India, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Serbia, St. Lucia, Togo, Trinidad & Tobago, and Crow Nation, USA. She has shown in scores of distinguished spaces from the New York Guggenheim Museum, the Hampton University Museum in Hampton, VA to the Embassy of the United States in Rome, Italy.
Born on October 21, 1960, in Port of Spain, Trinidad, West Indies, Carolyn immigrated to the U.S. in 1963. Her artwork, disciplined approach and technique of painting are products of over thirty years of Zen training. Alternately, the cosmological subject of Goodridge wax paintings, over the last ten years, has been inspired by the concepts of Masaru Emoto’s water messages, Edward Maryon’s Marcotone Sound Color Theory, Rupert Sheldrake’s Morphic Resonance Theory and theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku’s String Theory.
Carolyn received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Florida in 1993, and a Master of Fine Arts also in painting from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 1997.
