Biography


Inspired by my deep love of nature and animals, I have spent most of my life outdoors and have worked with animals all my life in many capacities: as horse rider and trainer in Dressage for many years, as a stable manager, and as a veterinary technician for a short time where I also volunteered with the local zoo and seabird sanctuary. I have also enjoyed kayaking for the past 20 years. My artwork reflects these interests and my knowledge of these subjects.
 
Though painting has not, until recently, been my primary focus and means of livelihood, it has always been a large part of my life and is what I have always returned to again and again through all of life's challenges. My pertinent education includes a Bachelor of Fine Art in painting from Northern Illinois University, art teacher training from State University of New York at New Paltz, an A.A.S. in Veterinary technology from S.U.N.Y. Delhi. I studied for 3 years with Joan Willies, a noted miniature artist and teacher, as well as various other workshops, classes, and years of weekly portrait and figure practice. I have also been studying with Margaret Fowler, learning porcelain painting, for the last several years.
 
I don't believe we are ever finished learning and strive to constantly improve my technique and understanding. Flexibility is important to me; I paint in acrylics and oils, large works to miniatures, and I also paint on porcelain.  I have experience teaching drawing and painting and am available to teach privately in my studio, or possibly at your location.  I am also available to do commissioned paintings,  with a particular interest in animal subjects, wildlife, or domestic, with or without interaction with their owners.
 
Thank you so very much for your interest.  Carin
