Carole lives in a small town in Southern Indiana. Her inspiration for her scenes and florals comes from the beauty around her for the most part; However, she also enjoys portraiture of people and animals. For years, she painted numerous murals in homes, restaurants, schools, businesses and churches. Her art now is canvas, either in oil, acrylic or watercolor. Her work is a wide range of landscapes, seascapes, floral and portraits. However, she is inspired to paint Christian works, depicting her strong faith.
Carole says that as her artistic juices begin to flow it seems almost impossible to put down the brush. She will be at the easel for hours, - sometimes completing the painting in one setting. She has formal training from the Louisville School of Art, was an art major in college and has taken lessons from some well-known artists whose pallets have been oils, acrylics and watercolors.
Recently, her artwork has been chosen 2 years in a row to be enlarged into a vinyl exterior mural to be displayed and hung on the town's buildings, in very visible locations in the town of Shelbyville, Ky. Both chosen pieces of her art depict attractions in the town of Shelbyville, Ky.
Carole is an award-winning artist with several of her works across the globe and is currently exhibiting.at the Fine Arts Bardstown, Bardstown,Ky. Carole is a past member of the Central Kentucky Art Guild in Elizabethtown, Ky., and she is the past president of the Visual Artists of Bullitt County and past vice president of the Bullitt County Arts Council in Shepherdsville, Ky.
