PAINTINGS IN PASTEL AND ACRYLIC
Contemporary artist, Carol Santora, PSA, is an internationally-collected, award-winning equine and animal artist best known for her expressive and soulful paintings of horses and other animals. Other favored subjects include farm animals (cows, sheep, chickens), the big cats and select wildlife (bears, moose and buffalo).
Santora, works in soft pastel, mixed media and acrylic and her styles are equally diverse. Texture and line are the dominant design elements in her paintings that capture the spirit of animals. Using bold strokes of pastel and vivid abstracted color, or spontaneous splashes and drips of acrylic paint, along with the beauty of form, Santora celebrates animals in her expressionistic and modern style.
The Lyman, Maine-based artist is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America (PSA), has an art gallery and working studio in her home, and is represented by galleries in ME and WY.
