Dabs and dots of paint brushed together create worlds unknown and sites unseen....imaginary friends and imaginary places come to life.
According to Carol
I was "born to paint". Both parents and my brother played musical instruments and could sing anything. Father handcrafted furniture, mother designed clothing, taught cake decorators how to decorate, and brother could design anything architectural. My extended family abounds with authors, graphic artists, musicians, movie personalities, college professors, and many fine artists. Painting is in my genes.
My passion with painting began after a 30 year career teaching students with special needs. Finally the scribblings became published poetry and stories, the artwork began to have a life of its own, and Carol's Works was born.
My art is "visionary". With no formal training except for a degree in theater from Mars Hill College (now Mars Hill University), under the tutelage of drama professors, I learned perspective, painting, and performing.
"Up is still up, down is still down, red, yellow and blue still create any color you need. All you have to do is mix them correctly."
My paintings are bold and bright. Thinking of NOON, you won't find many shadows lurking around. I use media that creates specific effects. Food coloring creates boldness, sheetrock compound adds depth, acrylic mixed with watercolor paints move from surface to surface with ease.
