Carol Woodin's interest in the natural world and love of painting dovetailed into a career as a botanical artist specializing in rare plants, mainly orchids. In 1995, she was awarded a gold medal by the Royal Horticultural Society of England for her watercolors of paphiopedilums, and in 1998, she received the Annual Award for Excellence in Botanical Art from the American Society of Botanical Artists. Her watercolor paintings have been widely exhibited and collected: among recent venues are the Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, D.C.; Kew Gardens Gallery, in London; Newhouse Galleries, in New York; the World Orchid Conference, in Dijon, France; the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, England; and Brooklyn Botanic Garden, where she is a member of the Florilegium Society. As part of the Shirley Sherwood Collection, her work has been exhibited in the U.S., Australia, Japan, South Africa, U.K., Sweden, and Italy. She has served on the board of the American Society of Botanical Artists and is currently its exhibitions coordinator.
