Carol Sharos is a student of Art. She has studied at Joliet Junior College, Prairie State College, and various artist run workshops. She has participated in several craft and art shows in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. She has lived in Chicago most of her life moving here to Arkansas in 2005. Her body of work ranges from vine charcoal drawings to acrylic paintings.
Art has been her therapy when life got too complex. She is the middle child in a large family; art has always been an escape. It has set her apart from her siblings. She loves to get lost in all the details. While she enjoys expressing her creativity through many artistic mediums–including quilting, drawing, jewelry making and multi-media projects–her real love is painting and this is what she is currently focusing on.
Her art has gone through many different phases. Carol is always evolving, learning and discovering new artistic perspectives. She enjoys figure drawing, portraits, pop art, and other decorative crafts. Each piece is handmade and original work.
Carol loves to capture color in different tones and values and play them off one another. Pattern is also important and she uses it to express feeling and mood.Green is her favorite color; it is calming, harmonious and the color of fresh beginnings which she hopes are in her work.
Her most recent piece is Ferdinand the Bull-Pig. She used a field of daisies to hide ladybugs, dragonflies, even a tree frog. Come and meet this Pig and see what you can find.
