Carolyn Shoemaker Artist Profile

Carolyn uses Matboard and More materials for her presentations.

BIO

My name is Carolyn and I am an Artist/Designer. My love for art started at a very early age. As a little girl I was always creating, drawing and making cards. I always knew art would figure prominently in my life, professionally and personally.
I studied at the College For Creative Studies in Detroit, where I earned my BA in Graphic Communications. I am an established professional graphic designer, and recently made a switch in priorities from a Full Time Graphic Designer to Full Time Fine Artist. It has been so rewarding to focus more on fine art.  Acrylics are my medium of choice, and my subject matter changes from day to day. I enjoy experimenting with all types of subject matter, color and techniques.

My paintings are for sale on artfinder.com. I recently was invited to exhibit my work at the 2015 CCS Alumni Exhibition and had a one women show at Cranberries Café in Goodrich, Michigan. Also, I have paintings exhibited at the South Haven Art Center, in South Haven, Michigan and the Crooked Tree Art Center in Traverse City Michigan.

I am inspired  by Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollack, Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol and so many more! From abstracts to realistic landscapes and flowers, I am exploring it all and enjoying every moment.

Thank you for your consideration,

Carolyn Shoemaker, csomatic@hotmail.com248-736-3651

Am I Blue?

Am I Blue? Growing up, I mostly heard about how weird Picasso’s paintings were. Someone would show me a picture of a bunch of shapes and colors, and then tell me it was a person. Or a building. Or whatever. It didn’t make sense to me. Paintings should just look like the thing, with a …

Napoleon and the Alps Napoleon is one of the most recognizable historical figures. He had an exciting and complicated career, and we still feel the effects of his actions today. While he certainly had a more direct impact on Europe, he played a role in American history as well. In the earl 1800s, President Jefferson …

Gothic. American Gothic.

Gothic. American Gothic. American Gothic. Two very evocative words, even removed from the famous painting. If you’re like me, you’d have seen the painting and parodies before connecting them with the famous title. Together, though, they form a fascinating and iconic piece of American art. It’s hard to say exactly what is so striking about …
