Carole Ann grew up on a farm in southern Idaho and she has lived in Spokane, Washington since 1979. She started painting in 1998 and she has been doing so ever since. Her love of animals, abstracts and still-life come from her childhood, but she has found a deep love for the contemporary and abstract world of fine art.
Carole Ann is a self taught artist and is a great experimentalist when it comes to attempting new things with a brush and pallet knife. The influence she has had over the years has pushed her to paint to a higher degree and her use of bold strokes, either with a brush or pallet knife, shows her love of color, texture and feeling.
