Carole Busby, Artist
Carole is a mostly self-taught artist, painting whenever work or life expectations allowed
since 1998. Retirement in 2013 finally allowed her the opportunity to take weekend
workshops with watercolour master Joe Francis Dowden, seascape expert oil painter Roy
Lang amongst other well-known artists. Followed since 2019 by obtaining Merit Diplomas
from the London College of Art in both Pet Portraits and Landscapes. More recently, since
discovering a passion for soft pastels Carole has attended online painterly pastel workshop
courses under Alain Picard and also Marla Baggetta.
Painting with professional watercolours, inks, gouache, rich soft pastels also oils and acrylic
often using knives for a thickly applied impasto finish. Carole's subject matter is diverse,
constantly evolving, always driven by a passion for vibrant artistic expression whether
through texture, colour or experimentation.
