The Artist Says:

Art is food for the soul.



Caroline Ratliff, a contemporary landscape artist, specializes in painting the southwest. Her love of the out of doors draws her to state and national parks to photograph and paint landscapes in pastel and oil. Waterfalls, mountain streams, lakes, and ocean waves are favorite subjects in which she excels. Floral departments are temptations for studio paintings.
Caroline Ratliff, has developed her painting skills under the instruction of many prominent American pastel and oil painters, including Albert Handel, Matt Smith, and Scott Christensen. She received a Fine Arts degree from the University of Alabama and taught school in the Birmingham area. Moving to Texas, she continued teaching to support her family. When she retired, she became a full time artist. Seeing a need for a pastel society, she organized the Pastel Society of Southeast Texas and is a former president.
Caroline says, "Happiness is being an artist."
