After completing a MFA at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, Caryl Goode spent the next years working in New York City and Woodstock, NY. In NYC she was Creative Director of a graphic design studio, Quad Left, Inc. Upon moving upstate, she continued to work with the Quad Left, in addition to freelancing in Graphic Design, Illustration and commercial Jewelry Design.

In 2000, Caryl moved to Durango, CO and attended Fort Lewis College in pursuit of a teaching license in both Visual Arts and Bilingual Education. After completing the programs, Caryl participated in Durango’s Pumas on Parade project where she designed and painted a Puma which is on display at FLC. Caryl currently teaches Visual Arts at Miller Middle School where she shares her artistic experience with students.

Years of running and biking along the Animas River in Durango has produced an affinity for all aspects of the river and life. These seasons and transformations have inspired Caryl to create the Animas River Series.
