Raised in Minnesota with summers spent in Cody, Wyoming, and later relocating
to Arizona, Carole has long been fascinated by the great American west. Hours
spent sketching and painting in these years would set the foundation and pave
the way for more serious artistic pursuits as an adult.
Carole seeks a deep understanding and appreciation for her subjects, something
she strives to express on canvas. A life involved and connected to her muse, the
iconic equine, has led so much of her work to be painted through the lens of a
horseperson, paintings that those who live and work with horses have an
intimate connection with.
Her mastery for painting horses has not gone unnoticed. In 2012 Del Mar
Racetrack commissioned her to paint the winner of the prestigious $1 Million
Pacific Classic, the signature race run during the summer meet at beautiful
beachside track in San Diego, California, and Woodford Reserve Bourbon, the
official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby, commissioned a painting of a classic
Run for the Roses scene for the label of their 2015 Commemorative Derby
Carole continues to live and paint in Tucson, Arizona when shes not creating
colorful southwestern designs in her marketing/design capacity for locally
owned brokerage Tierra Antigua Realty, including award winning Tucson Rodeo
Carole has had solo shows in Tucson and Nashville, and her work has been
accepted into prestigious art shows and institutions such as the Cattlemans
Western Art Show, The Phippen Western Art Show & Sale, Mountain Oyster
Club Western Art Show & Sale, Empire 100 Western Art Show & Sale,
Tombstone Annual Art Show and the American Academy of Equine Art Open
and Invitational shows.
