Some of Carole’s earliest memories center around art. It has always been a pleasure for her to attempt to recreate what she saw around her, whether it might be trees, sky, animals or people.
At an early age she also noticed that other people enjoyed her creations. One painting of George Washington at Valley Forge was the beginning of her love for historical subjects. Her teachers and parents were always supportive of her efforts, many times giving extra credit for illustrating home work assignments.
Plans for attending art school were delayed by early marriage and a growing family. During that time Carole worked as a graphic artist. Now, with children grown, she has the opportunity to develop her skills by attending workshops and studying under some of the finest teachers. She has studied with Marion Cook, Frank Covino, E. John Robinson and Karen Vance. Nineteenth century artists Thomas Moran and Frederick Church have had a great influence on her as well as modern masters such as Clyde Aspevig and Howard Terpning.
She is thankful for the gift she has been given and continually seeks to improve as an artist. Along the way, she hopes to uplift spirits and to inspire others with the images given to her.
Thank you for your interest. Y’all come back soon!
