Hello....& welcome to my gallery. I'm Carol.
Most often I find myself creating and telling stories. Art play has always been in my life, in paint, textiles, goldsmithing and now digital.
Some descriptions of me might say.....I knit sweaters and skirts, I adore and attempt creating couture fashion, I used to make Byzantine style gold jewelry, that is, before gold became $1200/ounce and mostly I like bending the rules !
I tend to pick subjects and ideas from the past. To me there is a richness in history and its contents, like lace ruffles and petticoats, silk embroidery and leather bound books.
For me, to tell a story has always been a visual journey using ingredients full of textures, color and fantasy. I now live in South Miami , having moved to the warmth and away from New York winters. While I'll always miss NYCity, I love remembering the museums, the sparkle of storefronts, the movement and pace of energy in the magical dreams they gave me.
In the past few years my curiosity brought me to experimenting and learning a new world of digital art. Luckily, I found Sebastian Michaels' Photoshop Artistry courses and knew he'd given me the once secret key of mastering the computer jargon in sophisticated software.
I'm fortunate as well as humbled to be among and learning from this talented group of artists. That said, it lets me happily practice and dance along to find and fine tune my skills.
Creator, Collector, Purveyor of Beautiful Things. I hope you enjoy my work.
