Find out about Scottish Artist/Illustrator Mary Carroll
I live in the South West of Scotland with my husband, two teenage children and our beloved whippets. Everyday I count my blessings - for my family and for the beautiful area in which we live.
My Art, Illustrations and Inspirations
I am a self taught artist and illustrator and I am continually learning. I believe that genre can play too much of rôle in today's art and music culture - it can be so difficult to market your creations if they don't fit in a 'box'. Saying that, I'm not an off the wall surrealist. My art is pretty conservative but the topics and media vary. Sometimes, I'm painting an oil portrait, other times I'm creating a lino print. My work is inspired by the natural world; by strong women; my favourite places; and sight hounds - whippets, greyhounds, lurchers etc - I love them.
Please feel free to have a look at my work. I hope you like it and it would be great to have you visit time and time again.
