As a child Carole was always drawing on paper, books and walls (tsk tsk) along with love of drawing she also enjoyed poems and stories based around animals. Carole loved drawing animals. Having a rather dysfunctional childhood, drawing and poetry helped her through a traumatic childhood. These pursuits quietened her worried mind and was an escape. Adult life was up and down but moving to Malmsbury, remarried and with a large blended family and new friends the yen to learn saw her start a twelve month course which covered printing, colour and paints. Being one of the best things she had ever done, this inspired her to join an art group. After 10 years there she is now with the Kyneton art group doing all the workshops and soaking it all up. Carole feels that the best years are ahead, life is good and a far better inspiration to work from.
