Bio

  • Artist’s Statement

    Following a thoughtful approach, Carole seeks to convey on canvass what she feels, while remaining genuine. The natural beauty of the environment and its habitants has always been a source of inspiration for Carole. Although the main focus of her paintings is realistic, the background tends to be abstract. That style permits her to focus on the accuracy of the details of her main subject and give it the desired importance.

    Full of colour and emotions, her paintings have been inspired by her Commercial Art studies. The multitude of colours and brightness of its background play a vital role in the composition. Always seeking a tangible expression, painting is for her a source of energy, a challenge in constant evolution. While exploring different mediums, she mostly uses acrylic and mixed medium.
