About Carol

“I have always been drawn to the beauty of nature, especially wildlife and florals. The combination of suede board and oil-based colored pencils enables me to achieve an expressive contrast of color as well as the sensation of softness.


When working on a wildlife portrait, I start with the eyes. Traditionally understood to be the “windows to the soul,” the eyes are the key element of a successful composition. Only after it feels as the though the subject is staring back at you can I proceed with the remainder of the work.


I began my artistic career working with acrylic on canvas, but have since gravitated to working with colored pencil and graphite. I’m always in search of new subjects. I find myself most relaxed and happy when sitting at my art table producing something with great color, contrast and softness.”

Carol has been teaching art classes for the past 12 years in her Home Studio & at several Independent Senior Centers. She also has art classes for children in the summer and in the evening during the school year
