Biography


 



Carol McGill,  "Painting in the Spirit"


Carol McGill Fine Art was born in late in the 90"s, as I recovered from a ruptured appendix, not able to work, I turned to art for healing.  Against the odds, and advice from friends and family, I believed with God's help I could pursue the longing that had been in my heart since I was 16.  So I began:  exhibiting in the SC State Fair, Piccolo Spoleto, the Aquarium, NY City, Naples FL, and galleries in Beaufort, Charleston, Pawley's.  I won awards, taught classes, opened my own gallery and loved the direction my life was going.
Dreams were realized!
My parents' illnesses - both at once - brought everything to a crashing halt.  Here I am, almost ten years later, recovering once again, healing again.  I have found a new voice and am "flying free" as I create art from the leading of the Holy Spirit.
