C a r o l B u c k


My life experiences began as a native Texan, which did at times include cowgirl hats and horses.   As my travels led away from Texas, I was fortunate to experience the professions of nursing, aviation/flight instructing and art, and eventually assumed roles as a teacher in each.  Art has unquestionably been the common sustaining thread beginning in grammar school and lasting to the present. While rearing my son and daughter, I earned my Bachelor of Arts, Fine Art Degree from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, with the focus on painting and drawing. 

My professional interests and pursuits have evolved through art and community to include teaching in schools, museums, adult education and enrichment programs.  My work can be found in private and corporate collections. I am recently a year round resident of Sarasota, Florida.  My interests and abilities involve drawing, oil painting, guilding, encaustics, mixed media sculpture and silverpoint.

My art reflects the people, love, beauty, complexity, impact and understanding of the combinations of these life experiences.
