Pastel Society of Colorado
Carole Haslock has spent most of her life in artistic pursuits. After earning a Bachelor and Master's Degree from Wayne State University, she taught high school art in the Detroit metropolitan area. Her medium is primarily pastel; however, she also works in watercolor and colored pencil. Since her retirement from teaching, she can devote more time and energy to her painting. She splits her time between Colorado and Arizona and her travels have produced a variety of visual impressions. Carole's subjects focus on florals, landscapes and the interplay of architecture and the elements of nature. Her love of color and the vibrancy of the pastels are an exciting blend and evident in her paintings.
Carole has studied with various well-known artists, but most recently with Susan Voight. The technique she has researched is Pastel Painting the Degas Way. This allows for the pastel to be steamed and then framed without glass. Carole taught at the Art Center of Estes Park where various methods and techniques were explored. Carole is also a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of Colorado.
One of Carole's most treasured experiences was meeting Harley Brown, one of The Tucson Seven, and having two of her paintings juried by him into The Open Market Show in Tubac, Arizona. Her paintings are exhibited in Estes Park, Colorado, Green Valley and Tubac, Arizona, as well as in private collections throughout the United States.
Carole will accept commissioned artwork.
