Hello! My name Is Carole.

The last 25 years I have dedicated to teaching students about the arts and now, in this next chapter of my life, I am a full time artist in Maine. The process of making art is a joyful experience for me. My process starts out with an abstract approach. I am inspired by the beauty I see in light, forms, colors and shapes in nature. With an open minded approach I layer color with playful brushstrokes using many art tools. Just as in life, we must often embrace change, I welcome the transformation from one layer to the next. 


Once these backgrounds are mostly complete, I decide on the foreground images. Birch trees are my absolute favorite subject matter as well as lake sunrises/sunsets and florals.  I often enhance colors and composition to capture a moment or feeling expressing the joy I experience in the world around me. 


I have been creating since I was a young child. My earliest memory of making art was drawing my mother for a Mother’s Day Drawing Contest. She stood between two trees and she was way taller than the trees (which was my perception at the age of five)! I studied art with Sister Eva Ledoux through middle school and continued my art making journey through high school, college and most recently earned my Masters Degree in Integrated Arts.


In the challenges we face each day, my painting is a way to keep me focused on the good that can be found in everyday moments. Whether you own a one of a kind mini painting, archival print or an original oversized canvas that I have created, when you display one of my artworks in your own home, I hope it offers you a daily reminder of the good that today brings!
