- Carol Anne - 

Allow me to introduce myself and give you a flavour of my artistic influences.

My name is Carol Anne and I am an artist from the North West of England.

I use art to express my thoughts and passions.

I began my journey and my love of art in childhood, using art to reflect the beauty of the world around me. I was always an observer - watching and sketching.

Unfortunately, my art was also an outlet for all the difficulties I endured in my childhood and my early work was tinged with sadness. Despite my passion for art, I was prevented from going to Art college by my mother and instead, I was forced to leave school early to care for younger sibling.

For a long time, I laid down my paintbrushes, believing that the world of art was now closed to me. However, I came to realise that although I had missed one opportunity, my love for art was still there and I re-embarked on my artistic journey.




I set to work with oils on my first painting, 'My heart the child'. This painting was self counselling, as I could place everything I ever felt as a child into one canvas, disturbing but healing.

Since then, my artistic career has gone from strength to strength - with a successful exhibition at the Manchester Printworks, including work produced for the Harry Potter festival - a huge success. The Northern Soul festival was also a resounding success, with my work appearing on television. After all the obstacles I had overcome, it was so wonderful to have this recognition.

My involvement with the Printworks is ongoing and I also raise money for charity - using my art for good.

Below I have listed some of my successful artistic endeavours, to give a flavour of the work I have produced:
