studio palette composition canvas artist profile inspiration gallery imagination Stories Yet Untold LISA LESLIE HENDERSON writer once upon a time there was young girl who loved words. She loved their nuance, their subtle gradations in meaning, feeling, and tone. But mostly she loved how they could be woven together to come to life in poetry and stories. Today that young girl is the internationally published poet and highly acclaimed storyteller, Carol Burnes. In addi- tion to creating and performing her own material, Carol coaches others who have sto- ries to tell: professors, performers, therapists, doctors, poets, thesis writers, housewives, busi- nesspersons, dreamers, and even trial lawyers. Believing that we are all storytellers, and hav- ing developed a foolproof methodology for helping anyone and everyone access their own stories, Carol thrives on helping others dis- cover their own way with words. Carol is the fourth generation of her family to live in Weston, where making art has been a family tradition. She grew up on the farm where she now lives in a renovated turn-of- the-century barn. The surrounding farmland and generations of family hand-me-downs—a late 18th century horse-drawn buggy, disc harrows for tilling the soil, a great aunt's dearly loved doll house—have provided ample fodder for her imagination. "The barn holds stories of the past and endless possibilities for stories yet untold," she notes. 146 Carol Burnes WellesleyWeston Magazine | summer 2012 BRIAN SMITH
