Minature - Carol Toogood "Among the Gum Leaves"
Graphite on Card 9x6cm
Signed and inscribed on reverse
Carol's urge to create through drawing, painting, or other media, has been with her since childhood, and her love of animals, domestic or wild, is why they feature in most of her art. After a twenty year art hiatus while busy with family, she started creating "ACEOs" (Art Cards, Editions & Originals), measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and has sold many of these miniatures to collectors here and overseas.
Carol also enjoys working in larger format, and trying new styles/mediums. She is a member of the Sherbrooke Artist Society and The Australian Society of Miniature Art (Vic). She regularly exhibits at local and interstate Art Shows, and has won a number of awards for her work. Recent Awards include: Gold Medal (portraits/animals), at The Australian Society of Miniature Art (TAS) Annual Awards 2018. Highly Commended (graphite), & Commended (acrylic) miniatures, at The Small Packages Exhibition (ASMA Vic) 2018. Carols artworks often display a touch of whimsy or quirkiness. Whether serious or silly, she is happily satisfied if her depictions make someone smile.
