Carol’s passion and special love for painting and mudding has been a driving and inspirational force in her life for over a decade and a half. Always a fun-loving and energetic artist and teacher, her main goal has always been to share her joy and passion for art to her students and those around her. “Success is not measured by what WE accomplish, but by what we inspire others to do” is one of her favorite quotes.
A self taught artist, Carol taught and operated her own successful art studio in Canada, with a student base of 50+ students for 8 years. In 2013, she moved to SW Utah.
She has always looked to the future, and is eager to step ahead with new innovations to help share her talents with others. Since 2014, she has been offering Live Online Art and Mud Classes. She teaches Margot Clark’s Method of “MUD Art” with beautiful florals and texture. Carol does all types of painting (acrylic, fabric, glass, wOil) and welcomes students new to decorative painting or mudding to her for “one on one” (live, online) instruction in private lessons with her or in her group classes. She was the first teacher to incorporate this incredible avenue of teaching via the internet, and this has given her the opportunity to share her joy of painting with an expanded market throughout the world through interactive live classes.
When not painting or teaching, Carol enjoys travel with her companion, Bill, including “Storm Chasing” (tornadoes), hiking, and crocheting. Her “toddler” at home is their Irish Setter, Shawn !!!! She is the mother of a son and daughter, Jerrod and Jana, and has three grandchildren, Kamon, Gene’, and Ariyal .
Carol’s optimism about life and art are pure and simple: ” I want my students to smile when they look at their art and say: “I really did that “! To smile, laugh, and enjoy their art projects while they are learning with me in my classes is second only to them having the “confidence” to create them.”
