Carole's background over the years has spanned both graphic design and the arts. After a long hiatus from the fine arts world, Carole pulled out her paints and brushes and began to paint again. She works exclusively in acrylic and pencil.
Favorite subjects: florals, scenics, landscapes of local waterways, still life, commissioned people and pet portraits.
Carole has blended her graphic design and fine arts talents to create a series of interpretive Wayside signs, which include a series of highly detailed pencil renderings for the Indian Head Rail Trail in Charles County, Maryland.
