About her untitled work, Carol writes:
The imagery in this work symbolizes the science and data proving that all living organisms on earth are interdependent on each other. The transformational journey from birth to death is a natural phenomenon. The tragedy being the formulation of misinformation by social, political and religious factors, depriving the majority of humans and animals their right to live and die with dignity.
