A brief introduction to Carol’s Artwork

As an adolescent Carol began to create art in the form of drawings and paintings, to silence the creative urge that often gnaws slowly and carefully unless otherwise given attention.

Carol however was shy and often hid her art away as she had no intention of doing anything more than enjoy the release it gave her, after a while, chance had it that a man she had met at the time noticed some beautiful drawings behind the couch in her parents house where she lived and enquired about them.

Once her work had been seen and admired she realised that she must continue to feed her passion.

Years later as Carol began to develop her gifts she seeked to learn more about the craft and while living in London, Carol was honoured to recieve a sponsorship at the City & Guilds Art School of London courtesy of Simon Birch of Christie’s Fine Art Auctioneers who saw the potential in Carol. A dream had come true.

In 1990/91 Carol was awarded the Philip Connard Travel Award, the New Grafton Travel Award, alongside achieving her Diploma in Fine Art Painting. More impressively, Carol also had Artworks in the likes of the South London Art Gallery and the Westminster Art Gallery.

Carol was also recognised by the late Chris Hull and he subsequently asked Carol to be a gallery Artist in the Christopher Hull Gallery in Knightsbridge. A year later in 1992 Carol’s work also appeared in the Barbican, London.

In the years since, Carol has created from her talents a large collection of artworks (500+), of which have been featured in Galleries and exhibtions across England and Scotland.

Carol has managed this accomplishment despite the challenge of raising 4 children as the single mother of the household.

To this day Carol is more passionate than ever in the creation of her work and sells her Art worldwide to a variety of customers.

As you will summise from the great many, varying artworks. Each of Carol’s Artworks tells a story, bred from the depridations of life and simultaneously the blissful nature of existence.
