Family, sweet memories of childhood and special places are the essence of Tennessee Artist Carol Robin King. Carol remembers loving drawing as early as the age of three. Her Mother told stories of how long she could sit still and draw even at that young age. “I think I was born to be an artist. As far as I can remember, I would sketch on every nearby piece of paper.”
Growing up as a daughter of foreign missionaries fashioned Carol with deep values, faith, and an appreciation for people and beauty. While in Argentina, Carol asked her parents for art lessons. With six children, Carol’s parents simply could not justify such an extravagant expense. Determined to paint, however, Carol saved her allowance to purchase several oil paints and a piece of canvas. She proceeded to paint a clipper ship in most intricate detail and presented it to her parents. Upon seeing the painting, they promptly signed her up for art school and provided for three years of schooling. “That is a sacrifice I will always remember and appreciate!”
“I’m driven to paint, it’s something God put deep inside me that has to come out. Even when I’m not drawing, I’m thinking about it and sketching in my mind.” Carol draws people portraits, animal portraits, still life art and landscape art, capturing moments in time that remind the soul of quiet times, pleasant memories and peaceful places. Its art for the heart and Jewelry for The Walls.
