About the Artist



Carole Chalmers, the daughter of an artist, began painting at a very early age and completed her first portrait at the age of 13. Throughout her youth Carole was aware of the majesty in landscape and developed the desire to express through art the magnificence of God's awesome creation.

A creative homelife and excellent early education provided opportunities for artistic exploration. In college at Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Carole found academic teachers in the late 60's still willing to focus on the importance of realistic representation.

At the Atlanta School of Art at the High Museum in Atlanta, Ga (now an extension of SCAD) she continued to stretch her artistic vision with "a faculty of wonderful artists and instructors who encouraged us to reach higher for artistic standards and creativity." Subsequently, Carole studied in New York at the Art Students League, and Philadelphia at Studio Incamminati where she was influenced by some of the great painters of our time. She continues to enjoy occasional trips to Philadelphia, New York and France to sharpen her skills.

Carole lives in a small Georgia town with her husband, Jim, and her dog, Murphy, where she works and teaches in her home studio. Carole and Jim, have four children and five grandchildren.
