Just a Part of the Pattern

"My medium is pastel and my work is essentially figurative. But my influences come from many places: travel, myth, literature, old movies, documentaries."

Carol Doenecke received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1964. But it was not until 1979 that she began to paint seriously. Since then, she has received many awards for her pastels and has shown them in juried exhibitions in 22 states and two Canadian provinces.
