Carol Papaleo's Profile

About

I'm a full time artist working in watercolors, acrylics, and mixed media. I currently have my own gallery and have a love affair with the wild wilderness and small towns of the Upper Pennisula of Michigan. Known for my Marquette-Our Town Series prints that I started 10 years ago. I'm branching out, doing tiles,and ornaments. I'm constantly re-inventing myself and want to make my art available to the masses. I'm a serious artist but I don"t take myself too seriously. I want to create a feeling that goes beyond the medium I use. My gallery has been successful and my prints have traveled and found homes all over the world. I will do special pieces for those who ask. Take time to browse my shop and let me know what you think.

2015 was an exciting year for me as an artist. The Michigan governor, Rick Snyder, asked me to do Christmas ornaments for him to give out as gifts…

2015 was an exciting year for me as an artist. The Michigan governor, Rick Snyder, asked me to do Christmas ornaments for him to give out as gifts to people that were invited to his home for the holidays. It was an honor that I never expected. So he chose 10 locations around the state for me to paint and translate to my glass ornaments that you see in my shop.

This year,2016 I am able to bring those images to you. Starting in February I will introduce the Governor's Choice Series in the ornaments , and I will introduce one of the 10 designs each month. You can keep up by going to my Facebook page Art U.P. Style Gallery to see what I am doing.
