91 X 61 CM OIL ON CANVAS NOT FOR SALE but COMMISSIONS TAKEN

Carols paintings is a new web site, but I (Carol) have been painting for 40 years. Over the last 2 years I have painted nearly every day.

Art is my life. I do it because I love what I do and want other people to enjoy my art. 

I am totally committed to making my work as good as possible. 

I take various images, mix them up, change them until I'm happy with them, then start to draw and paint them.

All my work is totally original, so you will get a piece of work that no-one else will ever have.

My prices have been kept deliberately low to attract attention to my work, (even though there is a piece of work on my site, that took 81 hours ... the £20 note). That painting took a lot of commitment, I can tell you.

You will get the best service possible from me.

CAROL GASTONS OIL & ACRYLIC PAINTINGS ON CANVAS

From the age of 12, Carol has been painting a variety of things. As time went on, art became more and more important. After having her 2 children, she went on to get a further 20 qualifications, mainly in art and ICT. Being mainly self taught, gave Carol the incentive to keep improving a regular basis. The challenges of the qualifications held her focus, ... HND in Graphic Design, BTEC Foundation in Art & Design & BSc. Hons. QTS in Design & Technology. 

These led her on to teaching in High Schools & a Juvenile prison. 

Art became more important to her, as designing was a large part of her teaching. 

For the last 7 years Carol has been teaching tuition PRIVATELY, from her home. Her subjects are: English, Maths, ICT, Art & D/T.

Since this time, Carol has been able to paint so much more and has improved so much too.
