Carole has been painting in oil and acrylic since 2011 when a visit to her son’s college, Rhode Island School of Design, resurrected an interest in art, her area of study at the University of Washington in Seattle where she studied printmaking with the renowned artist Jacob Lawrence. She is attracted to people stories and nature: Important influences from Carole’s youth are Thomas Hart Benton, from her youth in Missouri, and Georgia O’Keeffe from her childhood years in Texas. Other favorite artist-storytellers are Eric Fischl and Jacob Lawrence. While storytelling underlies many of Carole’s pieces, the colors, shapes, and rhythms of nature are also irresistible: Sonia Delaunay, Annie Albers, and Van Gogh are favorites. Carole's work is in private collections throughout the US, UK, and Australia.
