"I am holding out my heart to you. If you are brave and hold out your heart too,
One day our hearts will spread all over the world."

Carolyn Weltman is a mixed-media artist who uses charcoal, graphite, gesso and oils as well as her computer to illustrate her innermost thoughts, poems and ideas. Her erotic art has been a constant fixture on the streets of New York's famous Soho art district and in Union Square since 1998. Selling her art in various formats, Carolyn is a persistent street artist, determined to bring her art directly to the people.

A favourite among New York natives as well as international visitors, her art is consistently seen and purchased at various exhibits and auctions, including the prestigious New York Academy of Art's annual juried exhibition and auction, "Take Home a Nude" which was held most recently at Phillips de Pury Auction House in New York.

Carolyn has been interviewed on international television, radio and internet webcasts and her artwork is featured on numerous websites devoted to digital artists.  Permanent exhibits can be viewed at sites such as ArtatLarge.com, Fantasya.net, Janesguide.com, About.com, FeralSexKitten.com among many others.

Mixed with her poetry, Carolyn's lush and sensual, beautifully rendered erotic illustrations make her website “Sophi's Grand Empire” (www.artforengineers.com) a uniquely healing place to visit.

Carolyn's work is regularly featured on book jackets and in many national and international magazines including: Penthouse International; Cupido; Eroticus; Allspice; Extreme Fetish, Diverse International and most recently in Vermont Woman. She was awarded best in illustration and fine art at the Rear Views Exhibition at the Leslie-Lohman Gallery in Soho, New York.  After showing at the Tom of Finland Erotic Art Show, Carolyn was asked to contribute a piece of her work to the permanent exhibition at the Tom of Finland museum. In November 2002 she was awarded Erotic Artist of the Year 2002 - 2003 at the Erotic Awards held in London, England. In February 2003, CityTV (Canada) aired a special featuring Carolyn and her work.  The show subsequently aired in the UK in June 2004.  In December 2003 and again in November 2005, Art at Large, New York, NY presented a solo show of her work and concurrently, one of her pieces was displayed at the Museum of Sex in New York City.

Permanently represented by Art at Large, NYC; Orbit Gallery Space, NJ; and The DrawingRoom, Chesham, Bucks, UK, Carolyn also shows her work regularly at exhibits, art fairs and shows within the United States and internationally.
