has developed a passion for painting and drawing
over several years. Her drawing and painting gained
momentum at teacher training college where she
studied art as a special subject.
teaching in primary education, she enjoyed every
opportunity to introduce and teach art and craftwork
skills to children. During these years, Carol
enhanced her artistic skills and developed her
style and techniques in acrylic, oil and charcoal.

has a passion for equestrian art subjects, particularly
racehorses and wild horses - Camargues and similar.
Her impressionist but equally contemporary painting
