Carlene Brod

Ever since I can remember, I have been mesmerized by the elements of art-color, texture, style and design.  I noticed the way a slant of sun turned a flower from one color to another, the way a cloud appears and changes.  I see beauty all around us in the designs of nature.  Our natural environment inspires me to try to capture the incredible paint box in my work.  I have an insatiable need to record the glorious colors and life changes.

My art education has been ongoing since childhood in combination with my academic education.  I have studied with various teachers and master artists throughout my life in addition to my career in education.  Art was a significant part of my classroom, both as decoration and a teaching tool.

I also had an entrepreneurial career in painted clothing, glass, wood and other objects of art.  I also create commissioned work and special order cards.

I wrote and illustrated a children's book, "The Surprise on the Patio."

"Your paintings make me feel happy," was the best compliment I received about my work.  I feel happy while I am creating a reflection of beauty.
