“The Older I get, the more I see there is a story being told on every level of existence.” LCH
My father and his grandfather, as I remember them, were both storytellers. Being men, their stories seemed to be more about their adventures OUT in the world. My stories come more from an internal point-of-view; using color and personal symbols with the aim to explore and share feelings that accompany particular moments in my life generally depicted in an eclectic way with women and children as the characters.
I was born in Cushing, Oklahoma in 1949 and spent my early childhood in Venezuela where in the second grade the realization came that I would become an artist.
Greg and I were married in 1969 and my long awaited life as a painter began. With our two children, we moved to Arizona and from 1985 to 2002; the paintings at one time or another were represented by galleries in Scottsdale, Tucson, Santa Fe, and Sedona. Those years of painting and selling established roots for Carter-Holman paintings in the Southwest.
My artwork (for over thirty- years) is represented by Wilde Meyer Gallery in Scottsdale in Tucson. Locally, I am pleased to now be showing with Camelot Gallery in Nevada City, California.
