Hello....& welcome to my gallery. I'm Carol.
I often 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'm pretty obsessive about detail and tend to pick subjects
and ideas from the past.
To me, there is richness in history and its contents,
as lace ruffles and petticoats, silk embroidery and leather bound books.
To tell a story has always been a visual journey
using ingredients full of textures, color and fantasy.
I now live in South Miami for many years, 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 learning
and experimenting in 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 amongst
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.
