Carole K. Boyd, Digital Fine Artist
As an emerging digital fine artist, Carole has become recognized and published both locally and nationally.
In her daily life, as well as being a digital painter, Carole is a horsewoman, dressage rider and trainer, an attorney, certified mediator, poet, singer-songwriter and rancher in rural Texas.
Carole’s love and knowledge of different cultures and peoples, animals, bodies of water, landscapes, and the journey of the spirit is reflected in her work.
Carole pursues the art of digital painting using only a mouse as a brush and starting with a blank computer screen and a palette of colors. Her paintings are original digital art and NOT altered, manipulated or painted photographs. They span categories from Surrealism to Realism, Impressionism to Illustrations, and even fine line drawings.
Carole’s predominant style is to paint in a realistic manner the subject upon which she wants the viewer to focus, and to paint the rest of the painting in a more impressionistic style. Carole feels that in this way the viewer’s eye is not distracted from the desired focus, and the viewer can fill in the other details with his or her imagination. Her works have been accepted in juried competitions in Texas and other states and have been sold to collectors throughout the United States. She has been represented by several galleries in Texas and is currently exhibiting at Bandera Art Gallery, Bandera, Texas, has just completed a one person show in Uvalde and in Medina, and recently won best in show in a juried international internet showing. She is presently also exhibiting as a visiting artist in Gallery Andrea, Old Town Art District, Scottsdale, Arizona, and has been chosen to be “Artist of the Week” for the week of November 7th, 2011, in the Atlanta, Georgia art magazine “Visual Overtures”. Carole has been commissioned to do both family and animal portraits for art collectors throughout Texas.
