Tennessee artist Carol Robin King was born and raised in Argentina as a daughter of foreign missionaries. She remembers loving drawing as early as the age of three. While in Argentina, she attended a professional art school for several years and continues learning through workshops, books and videos. King has had opportunities to paint commissions and create illustrations as well as teach art classes for children and teens in a private school setting. King works in various mediums including watercolor, acrylics, and pastel and she recently began working in bas relief 3D art with drywall. She currently resides in Kodak.
“Quiet times, pleasant memories and peaceful places are what I strive to capture in my art,” says Carol Robin King. “When I choose a subject, my main goal is to bring the viewer a moment’s peace in a hectic day or a pleasant memory to lift their spirit. I am inspired by people in everyday life and the beauty of nature. I often paint children in my works to help bring the viewer back to those simple times when life was new, fresh and less complicated. I’m driven to paint; it is an expression of my very being, and my hope is that somehow that expression will touch another person.” For more information, please visit http://www.CarolRobinKing.com or http://www.facebook.com/CarolRobinKing/.
