the love of painting
From Sydney to the Gold Coast
A move from Sydney to the Gold Coast in 2005 gave Carol the time to concentrate on her love of painting. Initially concentrating on oils Carol studied under well known Impressionists Colley Whisson, John Wilson and Barbara Suttie before being seduced by the radiant translucency of watercolours. Acclaimed artist, mentor and dear friend Maryanne Holmes was instrumental in aiding Carol to continue on her artistic journey.
I found a way
To Draw, To Paint, and To Create.
With Rob's support I was determined to find and embrace the beauty in life. I spent years teaching myself from books and DVDs and with the help of Rob's makeshift modifications to brushes. I found a way to draw, to paint, and to create. Initially I concentrated on oil painting before being seduced by the translucency of watercolours.
Art became a form of therapy, a way to cope with the enormous life changes with which I was faced. Art became my yoga.
