Carol has always loved drawing and as a small child, as long as she had a pencil and paper, she was happy. At school she was encouraged to study more academic subjects in order to get a “proper job”. She spent years working for an insurance company but always painted in her spare time.
Twelve years ago, Carol took the plunge and left her salaried employment to become a self-employed artist. Her preferred medium is pastel and she runs workshops and courses in this medium as well as demonstrating to art groups.
She was brought up in Wales and she now lives in rural Wiltshire. Her favourite subject is British Wildlife and she loves painting animals but has recently started producing paintings of racing cyclists.
