Carleen Ross Artist Biography

Carleen Ross is a Canadian artist and author residing in Sherwood Park with her husband and two sons. 2013 was the year Carleen painted her first green sea turtle, and it took her only a short time to obtain her first gallery representation. Since then, she has created over 65 green sea turtle paintings. 


She has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (focus in animal behaviour) and uses this training to bring forth the animal's essence with each paint stroke. Carleen uses her artwork and various degrees and certificates to conduct conservation and inspirational talks at organizations and schools about using your gifts to change the world around you. She has also written international articles and published a book, Journey to the Sea Turtle, to help promote awareness of these endangered animals. 


Carleen has had national-level recognition for her artwork and several solo art shows. Her artwork has been represented alongside Robert Bateman in festivals and calendars, and she has represented Western Canada in international art exhibitions. In 2017, the RCMP Heritage Centre purchased her series titled 'From Sea to Sea,' which told what life is like for an RCMP member. Her artwork is supported by multiple Sea Turtle conservation organizations such as Mālama i nā honu. 


With each piece she creates, she combines science and art to leave the viewer experiencing beautiful energy as they begin to notice the beauty these animals possess. Her artwork is in homes across North America, Italy, Spain, and Mexico.
