'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 painter who uses oils, watercolours, charcoal, graphite and gesso as well as her computer to illustrate her innermost thoughts, poems and ideas. Until recently, her erotic art was a constant fixture on the streets of New York's famous Soho art district and in Union Square. Carolyn is a persistent warrior, determined to bring her art directly to the people. Mixed with her poetry, Carolyn's lush and sensual, beautifully rendered erotic illustrations make her work uniquely healing. A favorite among New York natives as well as international visitors, her art is consistently seen and purchased at various exhibits and auctions, including Sothebys, Christys and Phillips de Pury Auction Houses in New York City.

Carolyn has been interviewed on international television, radio and internet web casts and her artwork is the subject of numerous documentaries and featured on numerous websites. Her work is featured as illustrations, on book jackets and in many national and international magazines including: Penthouse International; Cupido; Eroticus; Allspice; Extreme Fetish, Diverse International, Soho Journal and most recently in Vermont Woman and NY Arts Magazine. Her work is featured in The Mammoth Book of the Kama Sutra published in 2008 and in 2011 her male nudes were published in 100 Artists of the Male Figure, including a collaboration on the front and back covers of the book. She is the first woman artist to be interviewed in the flagship edition of

Carolyn was awarded best in illustration and fine art at the Rear Views Exhibition, Leslie Lohman Gallery, New York. She won two awards for her work in the 2008 ES the World's Greatest Erotic Art and was subsequently asked to be a juror for the 2009 Erotic Signature Competition. After showing with Tom of Finland, Carolyn was asked to contribute a piece of her work to the Tom of Finland museum. In November 2002 she was awarded Erotic Artist of the Year 2002 - 2003. In February 2003, City TV (Canada) aired a special featuring Carolyn and her work. The show subsequently aired in the UK in June 2004.

In 2003 and again in 2005, Art at Large, New York, NY presented solo shows of her work and concurrently, one of her pieces was displayed at the Museum of Sex in New York. In 2007, her most recent solo show was held at the Musuem of Porn in Art, Zurich, Switzerland. Also in 2007 two of her drawings were placed in the permanent collection of the Kinsey Institute Erotic Art Museum.

In 2009, Carolyn was asked to take part as a panel member and make a presentation of her work at the School of Visual Arts, NYC Artists Talk on Art which resulted in her being asked to make presentation of her work at the National Arts Club of NYC.

In 2010, 2011 and again in 2012 she was honoured to be the guest artist at the Arts de Valentine Erotic Art Show in Birmingham, Alabama.

Permanently represented by Basha Gallery, NYC; Orbit Gallery Space, NC; Parlor Gallery, NJ; The Drawing Room, Chesham, Bucks, UK; Museum of PorninArt, Zurich, Switzerland. Carolyn also shows her work regularly at exhibits, art fairs and shows both internationally and within the United States.
