The Artist's Profile . . .

Carol's Work Shop

Carol calls herself a 'self taught multi media artist'. In her early years, one of a kind soft sculpture intrigued her.  It  was a pleasant diversion for her while raising her young family.
 Carol ventured into wood carving in 1998, with her talented Mother, as her mentor. Her Mother continued carving prize winning works up to age 96 and encouraged Carol along the way. " I quickly found my 'passion' " says Carol." I was lucky enough to place very well in the novice division at woodcarving shows within the first 2 years, and moved on to intermediate very quickly. Carol tries to do at least one show a year, relishing in the critiques of the judges to assist in her growth as a carver.

Carol placed 2nd for two years in a row at the novice level in the Ward World Carving Competition in Ocean City, Md. in 2004 and 2006. Over the years she has won purchase awards and received numerous ribbons for carvings entered into various shows. She is always looking forward to learning more and progressing in her chosen craft.

Carol currently lives is Bracebridge Ontario where she has her studio overlooking forest, gardens and Lake Muskoka.  Numerous bird feeders around the property allow her to study birds in their natural habitat to get character and attitude.

We hope you will enjoy these works of art, and perhaps consider bookmarking the site to view  future new carvings.  It would be her pleasure to have one of her carvings in your collection.
