Crampton's painting studio is open any time by appointment. Feel free to come by and see what is happening! It will be open to the public in Spring 2015. [Directions to the studio: Building 101, Studio 1223, behind the main flagpole.]

Crampton's most recent series of paintings includes her pet rabbits as subjects as well as other animals. This was inspired by 18th Century still lifes with dead animals. Crampton starts direct with a brush and adds color glazes to build up the scene. The animals are painted from life if at all possible. Carolyn is also adding toys and other nonsense to the scenes.

Crampton illustrated and published a children's book called Dumbunny, by Mary Ann Wolf. It is available from Crampton, and in fine bookstores and Amazon. It's an enchanting story starring the only backwards bunny you are ever likely to meet. Hardcover, 50 color illustrations, for children 3 to 12, Howell Park Press.

For fun, Crampton also plays in the rock bands The Insufferables and The Cramp-ons.
