Carole, a native of Memphis, received a BA in sculpture from the University of Arkansas in 1973. In the early 1980's she set out to establish herself as an independent artist, experimenting with murals and faux finishes. A few years later she developed an interest in the calligraphy that now represents the bulk of her work.
Her calligraphy spans every style from ultra elegant to bouncy and fun. In addition to traditional calligraphy, she enjoys lettering on a wide variety of surfaces including walls, furniture, and animal skins. Recently she has combined her love of lettering with her early training in sculpture to produce lettering carved in stone.
Carole continuously updates and refreshes her skills by attending numerous conferences, workshops and seminars. She has been an active member of the Memphis Calligraphy Guild, where she served as guild librarian from 1988 to 2011. Her pastimes include hiking, working with her Shetland Sheepdogs, Garbo, Xena and Riley, and volunteering at Dust Devil Horse Ranch Sanctuary for Horses.
Carole specializes in custom jobs and will be happy to work to make your vision a reality.
